LA Observers Documented 3,249 Species for a Nature Challenge.

Is it a mockingbird? A dove? A pigeon? A gull?

Hmm.

Well, probably not the last bird, as gulls do rather sound like gulls.

Citizens for LA Wildlife (CLAW), a local volunteer conservation group, wants to shift that perspective; wildlife walks among us, even within the urban confines of downtown Los Angeles.
