Neil Losin’s “Birds Of the Santa Monica Mountains” website

November 26, 2010

Neil, whose program “The Science of Bird Song” was greatly enjoyed by many at our November, 2010 SMBAS meeting, has a new website featuring our local birds. It currently holds about 85 photos in five main categories: waterfowl, shorebirds, other water birds, song birds, and other land birds. Each bird has a close-up portrait, with the full-sized original picture available with a click. Another button opens up a recording of the bird’s song from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology Macaulay Library. (You can open up more than one bird song at the same time. The California Thrasher and California Quail make a nice combo.)

I’m sure the collection will grow. Now you can get “nose to bill” with some of your local neighbors.
He also has a blog, on which he discusses these pictures and other matters.
NOTE ADDED 7 Mar 2023: The links provided above no longer took you to Losin’s work, but to an Asian language site. They’ve been eliminated.
