Lower LA River

Saturday, August 3, 2019


August is about the peak of shorebird migration as wintering birds return and transients pass through. Be prepared for anything, but if your shorebird ID skills are rusty, we will spend as much time as is necessary on the more common species to get everyone comfortable with them. Take the 710 (Long Beach) Fwy south to the Willow Street offramp; head east across the L.A. River and take the first left on Golden Ave., the first left again on 26th. Follow 26th past the pump station onto DeForest Ave. Park near the river access by the bridge. Meet the group along the river at 8:00 am. We will bird until noon and may visit Dominguez Gap Wetlands if time permits.
