Visit to Southern California - September 2010
- Hi everyone
I may be visiting Southern California from Wales for a week at the beginning of September 2010.
This would be a family trip, based in Santa Monica, but I will have a rental car and don;t mind travelling in search of birds.
I would really appreciate your views on the likelihood of my seeing the following birds at that time of year, please:
Western Screech Owl
Swainson's Thrush - Russet-backed form
Le Conte's Thrasher
Sooty Fox Sparrow
Slate-colored Fox Sparrow
Any suggestions about specific locations to search for these birds would be very gratefully received.
Also, can you recommend any bird guides based in that area who I may be able to hire to help me find these birds?
Finally, would you be able to suggest anyone I could contact with respect to pelagic seabird trips in that area at that time of year?
All help and suggestions would be extremely welcome.
Many thanks in advance
