Santa Monica Audubon Hosts Birdwatching Trip

Only 15 minutes from Santa Monica, Chuck & Lillian Almdale will show us around one of San Fernando Valley’s best birding spots, where,– unless it’ has become a giant lake from recent rainfall, – we’’ll check the fields, pond, riparian areas and Los Angeles River for migrants and wintering birds. If we’’re not too pokey we’’ll make it over to Lake Balboa for Ross’s Goose and whatever else may be around. Expect ducks, raptors, herons, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, thrushes, flycatchers, wrens, corvids, kinglets, warblers, sparrows, blackbirds, finches and more. The whole gamut!
Family Guide: 1-2 miles easy walking on level crushed granite path. Dress in layers, bring water & snack, wear footwear suitable for possibly damp paths.
