Scissor-tailed Flycatcher – Santa Monica

Bird LA Day has something for everyone – a pop-up picnic, a beginner bird walk, the chance to connect with like-minded environmentalists.

Held every May, Bird LA Day celebrates the birds of Southern California and LA’s amazing biodiversity. Bird and nature-themed events are held throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Bird LA Day shines the spotlight on nature, and reminds the world that Los Angeles is a lot more than just film, fashion and celebrities. The majority of events are family-friendly and free-of-charge.

Bird LA Day is fast becoming a wonderful tradition throughout greater Los Angeles. Events run the spectrum from bird walks to photography classes to lectures to bar meet-ups and everything in between. From Debs Park in downtown LA to The G2 Gallery in Venice; from the Natural History Museum to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach and many other locations – there are events for every level of birder, from the uninitiated to the expert.
