Carmel River mouth AREA LIST

This list is compiled from all published literature, North America Birds files going back in the 1950s, the Monterey Peninsula Rare Bird Alert files back to the early 1980s, and the field notes of Bill Hill, Craig Hohenberger, and myself. I have also checked a portion of Laidlaw William's field notes on file at Hasting NHR. Additions to this list are welcome, but I do need a specific date and a specific observer to enter those data into the county database, and details may be necessary for rarities.
