This trip covers landscaped parkland, a man-made lake and natural coastal scrub habitats within the Baldwin Hills.  We are likely to see many of the resident birds such as Black and Say’s Phoebes, Cassin Kingbirds, California and Spotted Towhee, Red-tailed Hawk, & Cooper’s Hawk. Many of which will be in the beginning stages of their breeding cycle.  We will continue to look for wintering birds such as Merlin, Rufous-crowned, White-crowned and Golden-crowned Sparrows, Western Meadowlarks, and wintering ducks among others.  Finally, we will look for early spring migrants. Binoculars provided.
