Cherry trees in bloom as well as other flowering trees at Huntington Central Park.
I took two short walks on Saturday and Sunday at Huntington Central Park. Spring is definitely waiting in the wings. The tattered remnants of last year's Monarch Butterflies are fluttering through the trees and over the bushes. Flowers are starting to blossom, and little leaf nubs ready to unfurl are evident on the bare trees. The House Finches are starting to sing.
Winter is still hanging on, but waning. The bare-branched trees made patterns against a beautiful blue sky scattered with white, wispy clouds.
Here is one on the ground.
Cute Black Phoebe.
Large flocks of Ring-billed Gulls have been flying over Huntington Central Park and stopping at the Lakes and ponds.

I was stationed under a pine tree when a Townsend's Warbler started foraging among the Pine Cones.
A male Western Bluebird . Not surprising since there are Bluebird nesting boxes in Huntington Central Park . Also in Mason Regional Park.
