Hello Corey (in Santa Barbara):
Kudos to you....Sounds exciting.
County by county lists of sightings for CA appear via John Sterling's home page at:http://www.sterlingbirds.com/california_county_birding_intro.html
See the link to a file here and, then, go to each of the CA counties to which you will visit.
I hope this helps!
Regards, Daniel Edelstein
