The Malibu Creeks meets the Pacific Ocean at the Malibu Lagoon. Next door to the North is Surfrider Beach, recently designated as World Surfing Reserve. The lagoon is used by migratory birds traveling on the Pacific Flyway – a major north to south route of travel in the Americas.
According to the Santa Monica Bay Audubon Society, the following types of birds have been spotted:
“Offshore, shorebirds and waterfowl fall, winter, spring. 60+ species common in winter. Belding’s Savannah Sparrow, Allen’s Hummingbird, Sora, wintering Snowy Plover & Peregrine Falcon.”
The SMBA Society has a monthly bird walk on the 4th Sunday of each month at 8:30 a.m.
