First I’d like to give a shout out to Jim Kenney, whom many of you know and who has made many contributions over the years to Santa Monica Bay Audubon Society. This includes hundreds of excellent photographs both on this blog and on our FaceBook page (our Passerines album, for example). Many of you may not know that he is also a local wildflower expert, and the authoritative book Wildflowers of the Santa Monica Mountains – profusely illustrated with Jim’s photos – is still available on the internet.

The birds at the lagoon continue to dwindle in numbers and diversity as we move on towards summer, As with last month, they seemed fewer than usual, so I checked my records.
