We look for the local Great Horned Library-Owl, a most erudite fellow and friend of Pooh.

Huntington [Beach] Central Park is a well-known Autumn trap for all our western migrant songbirds.

But wait, there’s more! Every year the park hosts small numbers of stray flycatchers, vireos, sparrows and warblers from the eastern U.S.

And more! It also has resident exotics like Scaly-breasted Munia (aka Nutmeg Mannikin & Spice Finch) Lonchura punctulata, Orange-cheeked Waxbill Estrilda melpoda, Orange Bishop Euplectes franciscanus, and Pin-tailed Whydah Vidua macroura. Anything can happen!

NOTE: SIGNUP WITH LEADER IS NECESSARY. IN CASE OF NO SIGNUPS, THE TRIP IS CANCELLED.
