- Islay Creek Campground--Montana de Oro SP, San Luis Obispo, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&;t=p&z=13&q=35.2736118,-120.8838502&ll=35.2736118,-120.8838502
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S73389061
- Comments: "Juvenile light morph first seen flying low under thick fog. Notice black trailing edge to wings with black tips. Looked like a small RTHA overall but with a pale tail. Soon found the hawk perched in cypress and noticed dark brown streaking and spotting in upper breast and down flanks. All white underneath showing a white throat similar to RTHA. Small hawk slightly larger than RSHA. When perched hawk has a very short-tailed look. After the hawk perched it flew and disappeared pretty quickly and never saw again. Will post photos in a couple days."

- Comments: "Female bird possibly first perched in pines in campground. When we first arrived large swallow was flying around at tree tops just under fog and first thought it was a TRSW. Then I realized that it was similar size to starling’s flying around. Pale underneath to dark gray on upper breast with notched tail. This looked to be a female type PUMA. It flew around for a bit and also just disappeared. Was not able to photograph."
