Great direction. Found it no problem. Please be careful as the tree is right on the road and it is easy to flush the bird. If you come up today look for and arrow in the sand at the end of the turnout.

Yesterday, I went looking for the adult male Black-chinned Hummingbird reported on the Santa Cruz CBC, seen along Marion Avenue.
Just past the SLV district offices, the manzanitas along this 'sandy' section of road are in full bloom; hummingbirds (Anna's) are all over the area in high density. Opposite the yellow 15 mph 'twisting' road sign is a small pullout. Parking in the pullout, facing the SLV district offices (back toward Quail Hollow Road), one is facing a small young stand of acacia trees. An adult male Red-naped Sapsucker was in this stand between 3 and 3:30 pm yesterday. I saw no old sapsuckers drill holes, only the fresh ones this individual was making.
