Remember, if your party splits or moves to another sector, please begin a new field card.

Also note contacts for entrance onto private property.

Prefumo / See Canyons / Johnson Ranch Trail

This sector is divided into two subsectors, 19A and 19B, split at the top of Perfumo and See Canyons. Also the possibility of a separate party for the Johnson Ranch. This is a large area with a variety of habitats. Nighttime owling has produced Western Screech, Spotted, Long-eared, Saw-whet, and Pygmy owls in both canyons.

Check orchards for sapsuckers and fruit eaters such as tanagers, grosbeaks, and orioles. Listen and watch for Varied Thrush in dense woodlands.

Davis Canyon - check if time allows.
