Subject: Re: [sbcobirding] Area K is back in business
Apologies for multiple emails on this subject, but several people have
asked me where Area K is so I thought I'd clarify. Area K is this hotspot
<>, and it's located just north of Mesa
Road, between Stadium and Ocean Road. There's a gap in the vegetation
around 34.420847, -119.850422 where you have a good overlook of the wetland
below. There's also a place to park on the south side of the road near that
spot. In the map below, I've circled what I understand to be Area K, and
put a cross where I usually park. The pin is where the overlook is.
Different parts of the wetland are visible from different spots along the
stretch of the road near that pin. A scope is helpful at this location but
the ducks are visible and identifiable with binoculars too.
