Live Oak County Park / Los Jilgueros Preserve Trip Report

A big bunch of people, thirty-seven to be exact, turned out for the third annual Fallbrook Experience. It was a beautiful fresh, after the rains, sunny day. Lots of good times with looking at birds, visiting, chatting and, it seemed at times, loafing. The band-tailed pigeons put in t heir appearance for us, but still no wood ducks. Special visitors were the Hermit Thrush and the Townsend Warbler.

The length of the combined trips was more that our usual Saturday romps and I was concerned that it might be too much. This gang, however, were real troopers and although everyone had a couple of opportunities to take shortcuts at Los Jilgueros, we all took in everything that this wonderful park has to offer.
