Santa Cruz Trail

Rob Hofberg
 

Today I hiked up to the 19 Oaks campground on the Santa Cruz Trail from the Upper Oso campground.There were not a lot of birds.  About half way to 19 Oaks I saw an immature Golden Eagle, and in that same area I saw many lazuli buntings. Other highlights were 4 rufous-crowned sparrows, 3 canyon wrens and many western bluebirds. The rest of the usual chaparral residents were there, I did  not see any warblers, empids, or vireos.
It was a great day
