Join us on our monthly bird walks with LA Audubon

Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area

(in Baldwin Hills) (4100 S. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles 90056)

3rd Saturday of the month (Except July & August)
Time: 8:00 a.m. - 11:30 p.m.
Leaders:  Eric and Ann Brooks; Eleanor Osgood

This trip covers landscaped parkland, a man-made lake and natural coastal scrub habitats within the Baldwin Hills.  We are likely to see many of the resident birds such as Black and Say’s Phoebes, Cassin Kingbirds, California and Spotted Towhee, Red-tailed Hawk, Cooper’s Hawk.  We will also look for wintering birds such as Merlin, Rufous-crowned, White-crowned and Golden-crowned Sparrows.  Binoculars provided.

Directions: The park entrance is off of La Cienega Blvd. between Rodeo Rd. and Stocker St.   After passing the entrance kiosk ($6.00 parking fee) turn left (leading to the “Olympic Forest”) and park in the first available spaces.

Bird Walks are geared for the beginner/intermediate birders looking for an introduction to local birds and/or interested in reducing their carbon footprint by birding relatively close to home.  LAAS birdwalks and field trips delve into identification, natural histories and interactions observed in the field. All are welcome on either event, but no pets or small children please. Appropriate for young bird watchers age 6 years and older.  For further information contact Eleanor Osgood at [masked] or call (310) 839-5420. Birdwalks DO NOT require advance sign-up, just show up at the specified meeting time and place.

ATTN: Photographers - Kindly keep a distance from the birds, so that all can enjoy viewing them.  Aggressive photography will scare off the birds.

Carpooling is encouraged! If you wish to share your name and contact information on a carpool list for any event, call (323) 876-0202.  Leave your complete contact information including the date and destination of the event on the answering machine if there is no answer.

    An amazing variety of species sighted! Plus, a huge variety of raptors, including a Peregrine Falcon (perched), a Red-tailed Hawk eating a rodent, and some Accipiter almost snatched a Western Meadowlark while we looked on. I think we got lucky, but it was a great bird day and I had a lot of fun.
