White pelicans are regular visitors to the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve but can seem out of place to many visitors who think of them only as seaside birds. Pelicans nest on freshwater lakes although they often feed on or near salt water.

Great Backyard Bird Count Bird Walk at Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Area

February 15th, 2010 Comments off

My good friend, Keri Dearborn of, led us on a great walk around the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife area this morning in honor of the annual Great Backyard Bird Count this weekend. We spent 2.5 hours spotting all sorts of birds, including 2 new one’s for my life list, a Downy Woodpecker and an Osprey and also an up close look at a vulture.

Below are 6 embedded videos streamed live and recorded with my iPhone. I hope it gives you a bit of a feeling of what it was like to be out with us this morning.

Keri’s husband, Michael Lawshe, took some great photos on the walk, too.
