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.

Final Hooded Orioles Have Departed

No orioles have been seen in the Gottlieb Native Garden for over two weeks now, so it seems that the last Bullock’s and Hooded Orioles have departed for Western Mexico.  Good luck and godspeed – see you in March of 2016!

Recorded on Monday September 14, these female (adult on the right and juvenile on the left) Hooded Orioles will most likely be the last video capture of orioles in the GNG for the remainder of 2015.
