Birding on LA's Ballona Creek

The LA Times has a new bird watcher:

"Scout for winged creatures along the L.A. waterway. Hikers and bikers get an eyeful: herons, egrets, pelicans. And everywhere, gulls."

"This birding hot spot is not in the Florida Everglades or a remote wilderness. It's right in Los Angeles, along Ballona Creek as it flows west toward Santa Monica Bay, emptying in the Marina del Rey area. I'm seeing all these species while standing near a Marina Freeway overpass where cars whoosh by, their occupants oblivious to nature's bounty below."
