February Pelagic Trip


February 11th, 7:30 AM to noon, Marina del Rey. Join us for a fun and family-friendly Pelagic! In addition to some exciting pelagic birds, we might see dolphins, sea lions, and even whales. This year we are going with a bigger boat to accommodate more people, and a longer trip so we can go farther and hopefully see more. The cost will be $30 per person paid in advance (which is still less than the average $35 for a 2 hour whale watch trip).

Pasadena / San Gabriel Valley Christmas Count 2017


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?


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


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.
