Got Birds?!

On Saturday, May 7 Audubon California and 30 some organizations across Los Angeles at 50 different sites celebrated Bird LA Day.


The Friends invited South Bay Wildlife Rehab to the Ballona Freshwater Marsh to dazzle our visitors with crowd favorites, including Miss Luna (the Barn Owl) and Eddie (the Great Horned Owl).

Despite the early morning rain we had over 120 visitors, most of whom went out on 2 bird walks around the back trail of the Freshwater Marsh. Cameron Tescher got a great shot of a “very good bird” – a Yellow-breasted Chat migrating through. One day chats may stick around and nest!

Over seven hours of birding, our amateur ornithologists saw 56 species of birds!

When folks weren’t birding they were learning about other organizations and all the fine work we do in the Ballona Watershed.


A big hit with the kids was our “not so Angry Birds” game!

Thanks to our tablers, volunteers, board members and attendees for making Bird LA Day a great success.
