Pasadena Humane and Pasadena Audubon Society invite you to join them on Wednesday, January 13, for a virtual webinar about backyard birds.

If you’ve ever wondered what type of bird has perched on your fence or where you can visit local birds, this is the event for you. At the webinar, called “Backyard Birds,” from 12 to 1 p.m., Pasadena Humane staff and Taylor Paez of the Pasadena Audubon Society will share fun and educational information about local backyard birds and great bird watching locations.

Taylor Paez is the treasurer at the Pasadena Audubon Society. She fell in love with birds in 2008, when she observed a flock of cedar waxwings for the first time, marking the beginning of a birding addiction. 

In 2017, she attempted a Big Year, crisscrossing the United States while living out of her beloved Ford Ranger. Her travels have helped shaped her mission to connect as many people as possible to the world of birding while celebrating the strength that comes from biodiversity and the diversity of human experiences. 

Paez joined Pasadena Audubon as a chapter member in 2018 and joined the board as Publicity Chair the following year. She resides in Pasadena with her partner and an ever-growing number of house plants, enjoying the community she is proud to serve. 

The Pasadena Audubon Society says about 600 bird species call California home. Their website lists 26 of them, including peacocks, pelicans, herons, egrets, seagulls, doves, hummingbirds, owls, and wild parrots. At places in Pasadena like Eaton Canyon, you can find some of these fabulous local native birds, such as the California Towhee, California Quail and California Thrasher.  

Whenever you’d like to know where recent sightings of rare birds are discussed, and learn about birding events you can join, you can visit the Pasadena Audubon forum,, and maybe consider becoming a member. Who knows, that bird you see visiting your backyard often may just be one of those rare ones that everybody else would want to see or hear about.
