The Red Car Property is a natural trail, not just for people, but for urban wildlife too. Red Shouldered Hawks & Red Tailed Hawks are often seen on the this (north end) of the property. Last week, I heard, but did not see a Cooper's Hawk calling in the dense trees along Adelbert.
Neighbors along the north end of the property also report seeing Barn Owls, Great Horned Owls, coyotes, skunks, raccoons & opossum. We've documented a number of Harvester Ant colonies which are an "indicator species," a sign that indicates the environment is diverse enough to support their existence.
The Red Car Property, just above the City of Los Angeles Cultural Historic Landmark Viaduct Footings, is a great place to butterfly watch on a sunny morning. Monarch Butterflies seem to really like the slope amongst the footings. While standing there for 10 minutes the other day, I was wowed by the variety of species including bright yellow butterflies, white butterflies, Gulf Fritillaries, Skippers, West Coast Ladies & Monarchs.
