What a thrill it was to see this bird in Southern California. It's out of it's historical/normal range for a Cardinal, however, it's been reported that there is a Cardinal population here at Whittier Narrows Nature Center in South El Monte, California for quite some time. It's moved westwardly from it's normal range.

I enjoy the intensity of the sun adds to colored glass.
A teapot I received as a gift from dear friends. It's from Teavana. Delicious Oolong and English teas have been had many of times from this pot.
This rubber monkey in an inflated floating ring was the perfect item to organize my rubberband supply.

Easter Sunday brought hues of green, black, gray and yellows to Newport Beach Back Bay.
This appears to be a young Allen's Hummingbird
This is a Common Raven with it's classic wedge shaped tale. A crow would have a straight edge tail.
A tiny and lovely specimen among green blades.

This is a rare visitor to California. Two fellow birders and myself got to see this Harris's Sparrow on Tuesday, March 31, 2015, at White Point Beach in San Pedro, Ca. It was very exciting to see it and hear it sing. This was a "life" bird for my two birding companions and myself. "Life" bird means it's a bird someone has personally seen for the very first time.
