Streets of Morro Bay / Embarcadero

Walk and drive streets. Check concentrations of pines for mixed flocks. Olive Street, Carrito Place, and Main Street between Olive and Acacia should definitely be covered. Check the eucalyptus along Morro Ave near Olive for orioles and tanagers. Check the red blooming bottle brush trees along Main Street.

Bay - Check the bay from vantage points along the Embarcadero. Watch for loons, Red-necked Grebe, Long-tailed Duck, Common Goldeneye, and Greater Scaup.

Scope the inside of the Sandspit across from Oliver Street where shorebirds and gulls accumulate at high tide and Black Skimmer is occasionally found.
