Killdeer Sighting!

While out in the park today, we noticed a noisy Killdeer scurrying around our seasonal wetland here at Los Angeles State Historic Park. This isn’t the first time we spotted a Killdeer here in the park but that doesn’t mean we are any less excited when we spot one!

BIRD FACT: The Killdeer is a shore bird that got its name from its loud call that sounds like they are saying their name, kill deer.

Seasonal Wetland

If you look here and here for a peek at the proposed design for Los Angeles State Historic Park you’ll find that a riparian wetland habitat is envisioned at the Northern end of the park. We hope to create this wetland with water from the Los Angeles River and someday make a physical connection to the river itself. This is no small job and the LASHP team is currently working in partnership with City Council District 1, Planning Department and Bureau of Engineering along with the Army Corps of Engineers, the MTA, and Los Angeles DWP to orchestrate this complex task.

In the meantime, enjoy our seasonal wetland compliments of mother nature…
