South Shore Loop

Although the word "Night" is part of the Common Nighthawks' name, they can be found swooping through the air catching insects during the day - beautiful birds!

See a detailed route description in my log entry of 4/3/14 titled "South Shore Outer Loop"

Temps were in the low 80's, a sunny sky with a good breeze, nice and quiet so you could hear all the birds, more cactus are in bloom, watching lizards scamper and birds flying - a perfect day to visit, and hike, the park!
