El Tecolote

Here you will find links to our El Tecolote (ET) newsletter in color. Some articles in ET are too long to fit in the printed edition, the full length articles can be found below.

We are fortunate to have online an archival history of our newsletter from the present day back to when Santa Barbara Audubon Society was a Bird Study Group at the Santa Barbara Museum Of Natural History in 1963.
