Hi, just wanted to report a good raptor spot. Visited like 3 times in the morning before college tennis tournament start each day last week. At Vista point(entrance to Eastbluff) you can watch at least 5 raptors. Plus Osprey a bit further down before the first overlook(0.25 miles?), that's 6. Vulture, Red-tailed, Harrier, Osprey, White-tailed Kite, Kestrel.
At high tide shorebirds forage at the flooded field right next to you. Tallied about 60 species.
