Earl and MBB -- many "usual" spots at Carmel River mouth are not
accessible without chest waders. It is too deep downstream of Carmel
River Inn for ordinary calf-length boots and, in any event, access at
Carmel River Inn is entirely closed right now due to construction. Some
of the birds reported on eBird have been upstream of Hwy 1, by those
using calf-length waders, but it has not been "birdy" and numbers of
migrants are few. So it is not at all like it was last year when access
was easier and the flocks of migrants much larger. Perhaps it will get
better over the next few weeks but, in general, birding has been "slow"
at this location.
