Pasadena / San Gabriel Valley Christmas Count 2017

Oct
29

As things slow down following a remarkable fall migration, thoughts begin turn to the holidays and to Christmas Bird Counts. How convenient it is that we have our own local count supported by Pasadena Audubon. The Pasadena CBC is a long running count and many dedicated local birders have been instrumental in making the Pasadena count what it is today. As the count began in 1946, this year marks its 71st anniversary.

Hahamongna Update: The revised EIR has been released. What happens next?

Jul
31

We need to speak up and tell the Board of Supervisors: Save Hahamongna!

The County Flood Control District has released their revisions to the Final Environmental Impact Report for the "Big Dig" in Hahamongna. The revisions have not addressed our concerns nor changed the size of the project. We need to continue to advocate for a project that is smaller, slower, and safer for the community and for wildlife. More information on the history of the project can be found at savehahamonga.org .

Here are some of the issues:

Christmas Bird Count 2016

Jan
22

Pasadena / San Gabriel Valley Christmas Bird Count Turns 70

After a lengthy anticipation, it’s hard to believe that another Christmas Bird Count has come and gone. We’ve now seen the completion of a remarkable seventh decade for the Pasadena CBC. That substantial period of time has generated a great deal of useful data, many good rare birds, and resulted in countless hours in the field. It’s also been a lot of fun for the many participants over the years.

Peck Road Water Conservation Park
Sunday, April 2nd
8 AM - 12 PM

The heavy rains this winter have been great for the drought, but not so great for one of our favorite birding spot at Peck Road Water Conservation Park. A lot of trash has washed down and needs to be removed to make the area safer and healthier for birds and other wildlife. We'll start with a bird walk at 8 AM and finish with a pizza lunch. Gloves and tools provided. Bring a friend! Please email Kym (kym.buzdygon@pasadenaaudubon.org) to sign up.

The purpose of the surveys was to determine species using the property, define breeding birds vs. migrants, determine diversity of species and check for use by any Special Status species. The surveys were coordinated by Lance Benner and Kym Buzdygon (Pasadena Audubon).
