A note about finding the Indigo Bunting in Cuyamaca

Good afternoon,

We spent the morning at Paso Picacho Campground, but in the wrong spot.  A total of 5 of us had been in this wrong spot, watching for the bird and just as we found out where we were supposed to be, 2 other birds show up at this incorrect location.  As you enter the gate, go to the right into the big parking area and just a little way's down, there is a road to the left with a sign that says "Group Campground".  As you go down this road, there is a road to the left with a gate.  You are supposed to go through that gate and all the way down the hill, If you don't go down that road, you will very soon see a restroom that looks like the area that Nancy was describing which is where all 7 of us ended up.  Anyhow, as mentioned above, go through that gate, all the way down the hill and the Indigo was back behind the restrooms.  If you look, you will see a little wooden footbridge and we had great views from this location.
