One of the greatest wildlife spectacles in Southern California takes place right here in the San Gabriel Valley as thousands of parrots and parakeets descend into their nightly roosts during the winter months. These birds are not native to the United States, but large populations of several parrot species have established themselves in the Los Angeles area and have become an important and noticeable part of the local urban ecosystem. Join Pasadena Audubon as we visit the Temple City parrot roost to witness this impressive and very noisy phenomenon! We will stroll slowly through the neighborhood and find a good vantage point as we let the parrot flocks come to us!
