The Gottlieb Native Garden

a california love story

The Gottlieb Native Garden is a flourishing ecosystem belonging to Susan and Dan Gottlieb, friends of flora and fauna and devoted environmental philanthropists. With more than 100 hand-selected plant species and hundreds of animal species, the backyard is a National Wildlife Federation-certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat and a Xerces Society-designated Pollinator Habitat.

Black-throated Gray Warbler Spotted

It amazes us how GNG is still attracting new species of birds we have never caught before on our cameras. At a quick glance one could over look this black-throated gray warbler (Dendroica nigrescens) as a sparrow or perhaps a Bewick's wren. In chatting with other Audubon members it seems these little birds are common amongst many Southern California native gardens.
