Temps started in the mid 80's ended in upper 90's, sunny, light steady SW wind.
Trails are dry and in need of trimming which park personnel are doing. Due to rains in the recent past, there are portions of all the trails that could use some repair - either with fill dirt or rock.
Saw quite a few birds today including a juvenile male Vermillion Flycatcher, Yellow Billed Cuckoo, Loggerhead Shrike and numerous Mockingbirds, Sparrows and Quail.
Saw a fairly large rattler (photo attached) who I convinced to turn around and go back into the brush.
