San Luis Creek

Primary goal is to cover as much of San Luis Creek as possible; walking recommended.

Also bird the stretches of Brizzolara and San Luis Obispo creeks and the Promontory development (Nashville, Yellow, and Tennessee warblers and American Redstart have been found here).

The persimmon trees in yard on Dana Street area are worth a check for waxwing and tanagers as is the habitat at the end of the street.

Look for sparrows around Mission School.

Check cemetery along Elks Lane for sapsuckers.
