I followed the only trail I could find into the riparian woods and came upon a pleasant transient camped there. Calling him a transient or homeless person, though, is pretty bigoted as he's lived in the woods there for a dozen years or more while I've lived in 8 or so different homes during that same time. So who's the transient? Anyway, he told me he was the last person living in the woods there and was soon moving out--he had a place lined up in Las Vegas, so I wish him the best.
The woods are dense without any trails, but I was able to find some birds from the edge. Of note were a couple of Common Ground Doves, Downy Woodpecker, and Bell's Vireos.
