Subject: Birding in Orange County
I will have about 1/2 day of birding when I arrive from NH on Saturday at
noon and was hoping to bird for a bit in Orange County before I head
north. I was considering the Palos Verdes peninsula OR the Upper Newport
Bay/Newport Pier area. Would you recommend one of these spots over the
other? Or another spot?
I am specifically hoping for California Gnatcatcher and Allen's
Hummingbird, but also saw the interesting report of Black and Least
Storm-Petrels. Is there a reliable spot for Least Storm-Petrel? That
would also be of great interest to me.
Also, have there been any reports of pelagics going over to see the
Island Scrub Jay? I think I will go for that on Sunday or Monday.
I realize that this is late notice, but I just happened to see your name
in the Orange County listserv site. Thanks for any quick help or advice
that you might be able to give me.
