This trip covers landscaped parkland, a man-made lake and natural coastal scrub habitats within the Baldwin Hills. It is spring and we are likely to see the resident birds such as Nuttal’s Woodpecker, Black and Say’s Phoebes, Cassin Kingbirds, California and Spotted Towhee, Red-tailed Hawk, Cooper’s Hawk engaging in nesting activities. Besides looking for spring migrants we will search for summer visitors that nest in the park such as Hooded and Bullocks Orioles, Barn Swallow, Western Kingbird and Western Bluebird.
