Sycamore tree

Who says there are no seasons in southern California?  This sycamore tree sits in front of my house up on the hill.  During the spring and summer when the leaves can camouflage them many species of birds rest in the tree waiting for a turn to snack at the feeders I have.  I have had finches, hummingbirds, beautiful orioles, doves, a hawk or 2, and most recently small flocks of kingbirds.  It is a fairly young tree.  I enjoyed sitting out on my front porch sketching it on a cool(65 deg) winter's day.

It's a lovely tree Denise, you have quite a variety of birds there. It must be very enjoyable watching them. I washed and cleaned my bird feeders yesterday, and they are back up in the trees full of fresh food for my pretty little friends. Spring is in the air, it was in the 40s today, quite pleasant.
