Saturday, May 9 was great weather for the “Big Sit” Birdathon event at the Sepulveda Basin.
Jeanne Polak- Recht and Linda Jones were both there to lead the event. Jeanne reports
sightings of 21 species. Eight people were there to sit on chairs or cushions or the ground to
enjoy nature and wait for birds to pop into their view.
They began with a sit at the amphitheater where they saw many Grackles and some Western
Bluebirds. Then the group moved on to the first pond where there were Canada Geese and
Red-wing Blackbirds. Allen’s Humming birds were were sighted as well as a Common
Yellowthroat. A baby squirrel was seen wandering around on the ground by itself. There were
two Red- tailed Hawks chasing each other and having a slight confrontation. And an occasional
rabbit hopped by.
The 2 hour “Big Sit” was enjoyed by all who attended!
