Lower LA River Shorebird Migration


Leader: Larry Allen. Shorebirds frequently stage in droves on this stretch of the river, with some exciting finds here in the past. Do you want to find out how to tell Least from Western Sandpipers? Or help Larry in his annual quest for a Semipalmated Sandpiper (yes, they turn up somewhere every year!) Take the 710 (Long Beach) Fwy S to the Willow Street offramp, head E over the LA River, and take the first left on Golden Ave, the first left on 26th, and follow this past the pump station onto DeForest Ave. Park near the river access by the bridge, meet along the river at 8:00 a.m., and bird until noon.
