Please see the following link for birding news in San Benito County, including eight "Christmas" MOUNTAIN PLOVERS in Panoche Valley:
These Mountain Plovers are located in a very, very small area, often very close to the road. This presents a rare opportunity for birders and photographers to see them reasonably close, if not very close at times. Please, please respect the birds by keeping noise down, not slamming car doors. Under no circumstances should anyone cross any fences or gates� quite ominous signs about being shot are in the area. Birding from the dirt road is fine, however. Thank you.
Enjoy the holidays!
