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.

San Bernardo Creek Road

Check willows along creek as much as possible. If possible gain access to upper reaches of canyon to check for turkeys and magpies and the pond south of road and east of Hwy 1 for ducks and Wilson's Snipe.

Check fields for Horned Lark, American Pipit, and Lark Sparrow. Watch for raptors. If owling, listen for Pygmy and Screech Owls.
