  22. Any recommended areas to see birds near San Diego and Los Angeles? Trying to see condors, California quail, jays, sea birds, etc. Coming from the Midwest so I'm trying to get as many species as possible. Looking through national parks some are closed for hiking due to condor populations. Any information is greatly appreciated! We are set to go to the channel islands to check out island scrub jays already! Getting excited! We are going end of April to early May.
