(Thomas Guide: 1028- C5 / GPS: 33.362626, -117.206300)
Our target birds here are the Band-tailed Pigeons and Wood Ducks. Lewis’s Woodpeckers have also been seen here at this time of the year.
A word of caution: several GPS models do not work well in the Fallbrook area. It is best to follow these instructions.
After the walk at Los Jilgueros Preserve, a buffet lunch is being served two minutes away at the Walkley’s.
Take I-15 north to the Fallbrook/E Mission Exit 51. Cross over the freeway and turn left on to Old Highway 395 located at the stoplight immediately after the I-15 South Freeway exit. Proceed 1 mile south to Reche Road. Turn right and proceed 2.2 miles up Reche Road to Live Oak County Park located immediately after Gird Road. Meet in the parking lot. There is a small parking fee at all SD County Parks, but free with a Senior Parking Permit.
Afterwards, we travel to Los Jilgueros Preserve for winter riparian species. Continue up Reche Road until it dead-ends onto Old Stagecoach Road. Turn left and proceed until it dead-ends into S Mission Road. Turn right, proceed through the next traffic light and within 100 yards, turn right into Los Jilgueros Preserve.
