Sector 10

Christmas Bird Count Sector Map

The following is a listing of key locations within this sector that may be the most productive based on past experience. Also noted are species that are hard to find within the count circle and are possible within the habitat of this sector. Please don't limit census to just the areas mentioned, but consider them the most important. Cover as much of the sector as your time and energy allows. Remember, if your party splits or moves to another sector, please begin a new field card. Any constructive comments about this sector would be appreciated (e.g., too big or small, access problem, additional key locations). Please note actual areas covered. Also note contacts for entrance onto private property.

Downtown SLO

Check as much of San Luis Creek as possible; American Dipper and Hooded Merganser are possible. This area requires walking or possibly biking.

The eastern sector near Hwy 101 and the neighborhood around it can be productive. Look for feeders, flowering eucalyptus, and mature plantings as they could hold Rufous/Allen's or other hummingbirds, warblers, tanagers, or orioles.
