Upcoming Field Trips

PAS is cautiously resuming outdoor birding field trips, following all known county and city health codes applicable to the field trip sites and planned activities. Read our latest guidelines.

The quickest way to find out about upcoming trips and registration details is via our member's eblast (these will likely come out in the last week of month prior to the trip). If you have not already signed up for our eblasts .

Midweek Nice and Easy Birding Club walks!

Longtime Pasadena Audubon members will remember our midweek “Magpie Study Group” events. Well, we're bringing them back! But given that these tongue-in-cheek midweek trips involve little studying, and even fewer magpies, we thought we’d change the name to something that is just a little more descriptive. So, say hello to our "Nice and Easy Birding Club" walks!

These walks offer some easy paced birding, with generously later morning start times (8:00am-9:00am) typically at just the one location at sites that are picked for both their quality of birding and accessibility for birders.

Upcoming trips will include the Los Angeles River, San Gabriel Spreading Grounds and more. Trips will mainly be run by PAS guide Ed Stonick, with some guest appearances from some other PAS trip leaders.

To sign up for the trips follow these steps...

  1. Read our guidelines on field trips here
  2. Complete our signup and waiver form here.
  3. Once you complete the form you will then be able to see the meeting time and location for the Nice and Easy trips in the coming months. Unlike most of our other trips, where you will be emailed these details, this time you will need to make a note to save the meeting time and location for these forthcoming trips yourself.

Malibu Migration Madness

Sunday, September 26, 2021
7:30 AM - lunch time

Trip Leaders: David Bell and Luke Tiller

Malibu, not just a killer track off Hole’s Celebrity Skin album, it’s also a great place for birding. Come join us for a morning exploring a host of sites where we might hope to find interesting migrant and resident birds. We will almost certainly check Malibu Lagoon, but also explore some lesser known sites for shorebirds, songbirds, waterfowl and more. It’s a great time to be looking for birds as so many species reach the peak of their migration and vagrants start to turn up too.
