Usal Camp- Blk & Wht Warbler - 9/27/06
- Jim & I had a BLACK & WHITE WARBLER and an imm. Black-
throated Gray Warbler at Usal Camp among almost 60 species.
A heavy marine layer about 150 ft. above the campground kept
birding somewhat quiet. We also had Bonaparte's Gull, Sharp-
shinned & Cooper's Hawks, Warbling Vireo, Cedar Waxwings
and Vaux' Swift.
Jim commented on how nice it was to bird in quiet surroundings,
without the traffic at most of the coastal creek mouths. The
weekend can have many more people, as Matthew related on
Saturday. So, mid-week is the best time to go to Usal. The
turnoff from Hwy 1 is at milepost 90.88, east of Rockport.
Then drive 6 miles on a steep, windy dirt road. There is a
$3 day use fee.
