Echo Park Lake: Judy Raskin led a bird count Sunday morning for the Audubon Society. Twenty-six species were spotted. Make that seen. (No word yet on how many were spotted.) That's about half the number of species counted on the Christmas walk on January 2. This could be due to migration: Most of the wild ducks, for one, do not summer in Echo Park. Some of them go to a nifty resort called Canada. But, as you can see in the list below, at least one Canada goose didn't budge.
Chicken Corner is glad to see the Ross's goose on the list. He/she has been here about six years now.
And June's birds were:
Black-crowned night heron
Kingbird - uncertain if western or Cassin's
