New Park New Friends

We left San Lorenzo Park this morning where we had grown fond of an immature Red-Shouldered Hawk that we saw most days.  You can see a photo of it in the Critter section with a morning catch. But now we have moved a little south and are now camped in El Chorro Regional Park close to San Luis Obispo. After getting set up and having lunch, we heard the now familiar cry of a Red-Shouldered Hawk!  Looking out the window we could see this immature sitting on a perch in the Dairy Creek Golf Course next door. We got our birding stuff and stepped out side to take a walk through the park, but before we got out of our campsite we had identified 7 different species, and by the time we had walked through a couple of loops of the campground we had scored 19 birds! There is no way we are only staying here one night.
