For most kids, summer means going to camp, taking a vacation or hanging out at the beach. But for 15-year-old Jose Luis Sandoval of Wilmington, summer is for the birds, literally: Jose spends his summers scoping out Los Angeles' top birding destinations, and he does it all using public transit. Off-Ramp producer Kevin Ferguson met up with him just outside KPCC headquarters in Pasadena to begin the long hike to Ken Malloy's Regional Harbor Park in Wilmington.
