I heard from park staff that some birders were trying to drive out past Drakes Beach earlier today after the shuttles started running. Apologies for that, esp. for those trying to get out to Mendoza, or B Ranch, to see the Painted Bunting.
The park runs shuttle buses on the weekends to alleviate the traffic nightmares of the past from visitors wanting to see whales and elephant seals. The shuttles operate on weekends and federal holiday Mondays from late Dec thru late March to mid-April. Please check the park website at nps.gov/pore for details, logistics, hours, etc.
