Re: Gg channel and oak titmouse
Hi all -
Thanks to Josiah, Logan, and other posters here I also heard the Oak Titmouse yesterday morning. It is the first county bird I've gotten in almost a year, after trying but missing titmice (5x), boobies (3x), and a few other things in 2013.
For those not as familiar with the location, it is best accessed off Lincoln Blvd a couple of hundred yards down (ENE) from the corner of Lincoln and 25th Ave. There is a parking lot at the bottom of the hill to the right (east) for the Lobos Creek restoration area with signs that mention "Lobos Valley" (but not "Lobos Dunes"). The boardwalk (actually a trexwalk) goes up Lobos Creek to the right of the parking lot. I heard the titmouse calling with chickadees exactly where Calvin Lou described it (below). It was behind a large lone Monterey Pine within the oaks.

After an unsuccessful hunt for the longspur, I went to Lobos Dunes (off of 25th Ave).
