Field Trip Report, Ralph Dills Park, by Donna Bray:

February 16, 2019, twelve birders had the opportunity to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count by attending the field trip at Ralph Dills Park in Paramount.  After a rainy week, the sunny and clear weather was welcome.  The Nature Trail’s native plantings harbored lots of sparrows, and we were fortunate to see a White-throated Sparrow.   A perched flock of Cedar Waxwings was also a treat to see and photograph.  A quick check of the adjoining L.A. River revealed it higher and swifter than it has been in a long time.  Instead of the concrete bottom, a few gulls could only rest on the concrete sides!
