Yesterday morning there was a Rough-legged Hawk along Soda Lake Road in the Carrizo. It was seen where the road transitions from asphalt to gravel a little ways past the turnoff for Selby Campground. https://ebird.org/checklist/S78542386  

Today, the Barrow's Goldeneye continued at the Pismo Creek Lagoon. It was seen in the late morning, possibly taking a break from foraging in the surf near the pier where it has been observed as well. https://ebird.org/checklist/S78593611

At Islay Creek Campground, the Black-throated Sparrow was found foraging around blue recycling bins near campsite 7. As I was heading out, the Streak-backed Oriole started chattering near the maintenance area next to the metal road gate. It soon popped up along the hillside and gave nice views, but then quickly disappeared. https://ebird.org/checklist/S78614266
