Western Kingbird Spotted!

The Western Kingbird

The park is full of bird activity and we are excited to announce that the Western Kingbird has made it to Los Angeles State Historic Park. At around noon, we spotted about five or six Western Kingbirds in and around the middle of the park.

Bird Fact: During mating season, the male Western Kingbird flies up to 60 feet in the air and then proceeds to free-fall, tumbling over and over as the ground approaches, in hopes of impressing a future mate.

  1. I’m so happy about this park! It has been beautiful this spring with its wildflowers…but what I’m most excited about it how it is going to mature in the next 10 years. Mmmm, thank you Los Angeles!

  2. Thanks for the kind words Greg! We are also excited for how the park will evolve.
