A few weeks ago the hills above Carpinteria, the coastal town I live in, burned. I was talking to a neighbor today, someone who spent his career working in forest management. He showed me a map and pointed out the few strips of riparian habitat where the fire damage was relatively light.
Except for those isolated pockets, the damage behind Carp is severe. In the time leading up to the fire, drought and the persistent high pressure had driven humidity levels so low that when the fire came through the vegetation was like one big expanse of tinder. The fire crews saved most of the structures.
The unburned areas are filled with displaced chaparral birds; wrentits and California towhees and ruby-crowned kinglets everywhere you look.
The extra birds will disperse more widely, or will suffer from predation, disease, or starvation. But for now it makes for exciting birding. The backcountry north of the crest is another matter. There the fires burned largely unchecked. Jameson Lake is seven miles north of Carpinteria.

I was introduced to Lies Women Believe my first year in Christ and God used this book to anchor me in what He had to say about Himself in the Scriptures.” — Jackie Hill Perry —.
The whole area is closed to the public. The only people with access are fire and forest service crews, and the people who maintain the water facilities at Jameson for the Montecito Water District.
So… tomorrow, thanks to some really nice people pulling some strings on our behalf, we get to go count birds there. I was there on a scouting trip in November. The Christmas counts are mostly for fun, but they also produce useful citizen science.
Yesterday I hiked up that road for the first time since the fire.
But the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory reports that Broad-winged Hawks have been moving south past Marin, so I wanted to get back up there to the hawkwatch spot my friend Eric found and have a look around. Or maybe the quote is true in a deeper sense.
