It was a busy day for Mark Osokow and his Birdathon group! They began at the Santa Susana
Field Laboratory, where the highlight was an American Pipit. From there they traveled to Sage
Ranch, Chatsworth Oaks Park, Chatsworth Hills Reserve, and Brown’s Canyon.
The group was able to view a colony of Great Egrets in a pond at the Chatsworth Reservoir
from a scope in Chatsworth Oaks Park!
After a great meal at a Chinese restaurant , they returned to Brown’s Canyon in the evening.
There they spotted a Common Poorwill, a Western Screech Owl, and a Great Horned Owl.
It was a long day that ended around 8:30 in the evening. The total species count was 67. This
is two more than the expected 65!
Thanks, Mark for a great day of birding!
