Did you know that just a short jaunt up the 405 allows you to experience 250 bird species all in their natural habitat? The San Fernando Valley Audubon Society is leading free bird walks for the next few months and now is a great time to visit for an "out-of-the-city" vacation, according to the Encino Patch.

The 120-acre wildlife site is home to more bird species than the average Angeleno sees in a day given our freeway-bound lifestyle and cooler months (like the one we've just had) are a perfect time to see larger birds like cormorants, herons and egrets as it's an ideal spot for them to snack on fish.
