A couple weeks ago when I drove to North Lake Park in Irvine to see the Laughing Gull I noticed various streets in the vicinity were nicely lined with pines and an understory of shrubs. The pines were contiguous and well vegetated enough that I made a mental note to return and explore the area on foot.
I decided to try the area this morning and spent a couple hours roaming the area between Main, Harvard, Alton, and Culver. I started out with low expectations and found some stretches largely devoid of birds. I did encounter several pockets with birds, particularly at spots where the pines mixed with ficus or carrotwoods. The highlight of the morning was a PLUMBEOUS VIREO working the pines along the north side of Alton just west of Paseo Westpark.
It is possible these streets could yield up other interesting birds.
