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.

Early Morning Autumn Bath

The number of individual hummingbirds in the GNG has increased dramatically as of late.   At any given time, there will be anywhere between 30-50 birds on the feeders.  And as expected this time of year, Anna’s Hummingbirds and Allen’s Hummingbirds are the only species represented - but we always keep alert for something unusual!

Anna’s and Allen’s Hummingbirds enjoy an early morning bath together.
