Today's walk report: 031520

Creepy quiet out there.

This was a drive to the walk location walk. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get inside of the destination because it's a school and schools are shut down for awhile. But it was open and there was virtually no one around. Here are a few pictures I got before it started raining on me. From about noon on March 12th until now we've seen 2.92" of rain.

A yellow bellied warbler in a myrtle tree.

Even though it was rather drippy dreary there was a lot of color to be found, like this Western-redbud bush (Cercis occidentalis).

And this confetti bush (Coleonema pulchellum).

The Alyogyne huegelii "Blue Hibiscus" flowers were certainly wet and droopy.

California Desert cottontail rabbits were abundant. This one was finding some tender shoots on a Grevillea 'Peaches and Cream'.

This female Allens hummingbird was being swooped upon by a frisky male.

This guy... Does he look familiar? He was featured in the last walk report.

And this female Annas hummingbird was enjoying about a dozen Aloe striata plants in full bloom.
