Forest Lawn tour unites birds and watchers

Northern flickers, right, enjoy an early spring morning at Forest Lawn Cemetery, providing plenty of fodder for birdwatchers. Those watching, below,  included, from left,  Kathy Snyder, Susan Gralak and Mary Jo Davila-Ryan, who followed tour guide and birder Dennis Gralak on a two-hour trip through the cemetery grounds April 25 as part of the recurring event “Forest Lawn is for the Birds.” The tour costs $10 and will meet at 8 a.m. on May 2, 4, 16 and 18. Binoculars are recommended. By Angelica Rodriguez and Brandon Waz
