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.

Wilson's Warbler Spotted

GNG cameras capture up to 400 images a week and during the fall months the bird diversity dwindles. So, it was very exciting to see a flash of golden plumage pop up on the screen while looking through recent cam photos. The Wilson's Warbler (Wilsonia pusilla) yellow color, along with the dark spot on its head make it easy to distinguish in photos. After researching we found out that Wilson's have a beautiful spring song...hopefully next year we will catch it!
