Lower L.A. River – Shorebird Extravaganza

Sunday, August 7, 2022
7:00 AM - noon

Trip Leader: LukeTiller

August is about the peak of shorebird migration in Southern California as our wintering birds return and transients pass through. Come and join PAS shorebird experts for a morning honing your ID skills with the common species and working out the ID challenges posed by potential uncommon species and vagrants. This is the most exciting time for shorebird migration and the Los Angeles River can boast north of 30 species of shorebird in August. We will bird until noon focused around Willow Street.
