Field Trips




Elysian Park


Saturday, October 21, 2017

7:30 am - noon

On this walk in LA's oldest park, we will search out residents, migrants, vagrants (only the feathered kind). A stray flyball or a redstart is not unheard of, and either will be pretty exciting! We do expect to see fall warblers, woodpeckers, and other perching birds while we explore the heart of Elysian Park!

From Pasadena, take the Pasadena (110) Freeway south, exit on Academy Way and go straight, past Solano Canyon. Follow Academy as it curves left, and runs into Academy Rd. Take a right and continue straight, past the right turn for Stadium Way, then take the next right into the parking lot where we will
meet.

Legg Lake & San Gabriel River

Saturday, November 4, 2015

7:30 am - 11:30 am

In winter the Hahamonga monthly walk is replaced by the one a Legg Lake. These trips will cover several consistently good lake and parkb irding areas. Legg Lake has lots of water and scattered trees and has produced good waterfowl numbers and varieties as well as an impressive list of migrants and wintering birds. Time permitting we'll include the Pico Rivera spreading grounds or some other river locations, based on what's around. An excellent trip for beginning and young birders.

Meet in the Santa Anita Ave. parking lot, closest to the 60 freeway. Take the Santa Anita exit and turn south from the off-ramp (going south). The lake and parking lot will be on your right.

North Slope San Gabriels


Saturday, November 11, 2017

7:30 am - early afternoon

We will explore areas on the northern slope of the San Gabriel Mountains, such as Grassy Hollow Visitor's Center, Jackson Lake, and locations in Valyermo. We will search for high­altitude species as well as wintering raptors. Ferriginous Hawk, Prairie Falcon, and Golden Eagle are possible, as are Red­breasted and Red­naped Sapsuckers. Unusual species (e.g. Lewis's Woodpecker, Yellow­bellied Sapsucker, Swamp Sparrow) have been found in some years. Time permitting, we may look for Mountain Plovers or longspurs in the nearby Antelope Valley.

Although we will get to higher elevations, all locations on this trip are accessible by car, and there is no strenuous hiking involved. We will be out most of the day, but anyone who needs to leave early will be able to do so

It may be cold, especially at higher elevations, so bring warm clothes. Also, bring lunch. We will meet at Pearblossom Park, which is at the corner of 121st st. East and East Avenue V14 in Pearblossom, just south of Hwy 138 (Pearblossom Highway)

8:00 am - 10:00 am

The Chilao Visitor Center walks will continue each month, weather and
road conditions permitting. (If things look rainy, snowy or brush fire-y, check first.)

Chilao, 26.5 miles north of I-210 on Angeles Crest (State Hwy 2) is a good place to see woodpeckers and we often see four or more species on a walk. Mountain Quail are somewhat elusive but still seen or heard about half the time. You can also expect Purple Finches, Steller's Jays, Dark-eyed Juncos and several species of nuthatches and others totaling about 30 species during the 2-hour walk
