Head's up: Point Lobos Lookout is going to be closed through the end of August 2014. They're removing a leaking fuel pipe from the bath's functioning era. Entire bottom trail is blocked. From the top trail you're blocked where the stairs up the cliff ends. So there's a top view, but the north is blocked by cypress.
There was a nice collection of shorebirds today around noon on the rocks below the Cliff House Western Viewing platform.
10 black turnstones
1 wandering tattler
5 Heermann's gulls in what looked like transitional plumage
good collection of terns (elegant?) visible by scope
brandt's cormorants, western gulls, brown pelicans, in abundance.
additional pigeon guillemots, a black oyster catcher.
