Christmas Bird Count 2016


Pasadena / San Gabriel Valley Christmas Bird Count Turns 70

Can it already be that time again? Spring and summer have come and gone and we’re well into fall. Christmas Bird Counts will begin in mid-December. And there’s none better than our very own Pasadena-San Gabriel Valley CBC. Then again I may be a bit biased...

Rubio Canyon Surveys


Volunteers from the Pasadena Audubon Society conducted a series of approximately weekly bird surveys on the Rubio Canyon property acquired by the Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy (AFC) from April 7 to June 26, 2016. 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).

Correction to the Wrentit- Sept 17th Project now at Arroyo Seco


We had originally planned on volunteering at the Hahamongna Nursery. However, they will be at the Arroyo Seco for the Coastal Cleanup Day- so we decided to join them! On Saturday, September 17, PAS volunteers will join more than 10,000 volunteers from all over Southern California will do their part to clean up their local beaches, rivers, creeks and parks. And that's just part of the picture: Coastal Cleanup Day happens all around the world–last year, it drew over 600,000 participants!

The objective is to count as many different species as possible in L.A. County during Birdathon weekend. Birdathon teams take widely divergent, but very serious, approaches to this event. Here are the results:
