Butterflying For Birders
Saturday, June 10, 2023
8:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Where: San Gabriel Canyon
Trip Leaders: Dan Cooper and Luke Tiller
Join Luke and Dan for an exploration of the San Gabriel Mountains that will seek out some of the beautiful butterflies that call our local mountain range home. When temperatures rise and birds quieten down insects come into their element. Our trip will focus on looking at and identifying butterflies through binoculars rather than catching them. Butterflies need a little warmth to get themselves going in the morning, which means a slightly later start to this trip than average.
Participant Limit: 25 (chosen by lottery)

Midweek Nice and Easy Birding Club with Ed Stonick
3rd Wednesday of each month, 8AM
Pasadena Audubon is relaunching what used to be our midweek “Magpie Study Group” events. Given that these tongue-in-cheek midweek trips involve little studying and even fewer magpies last year we thought we’d change the name to something that is just a little more descriptive. What these walks will offer is some easy paced birding, with generous later morning start times (8:00-9:00am) typically at just one local 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 you will need to read our guidelines on field trips.
Then, sign up below. Once you complete the sign up you will be able to access and download the meeting time and locations for the Nice and Easy trips in the coming year. Unlike other current PAS trips these tours will not limit the number of participants.
