118th Christmas Bird Count at Los Cerritos Wetlands

We’re still busy crunching the numbers for the final recap of our area CBC on Dec. 16th, 2017, but here is a little sneak peek for our Los Cerritos Wetlands IBA.  Broken down by wetlands sections, we noted 50 species at Synergy Oil Field/LCW Marsh (aka “Steamshovel Slough”), 17 species at Zedler Marsh, 16 species at Hellman Property and 6 species at the adjoining Gum Grove Park for a total of 89 different bird species seen at the Los Cerritos Wetlands that day.

Our Christmas Bird Count encompassed a much larger area of course! Watch for our entire EDA territory CBC Recap coming soon, should be published in our March newsletter.
