Silk Oak

A good strategy to find some colorful spring migrants is to look for these trees.  An Australian native also called “Silky Oak”.  Keep your eyes open, and starting in mid-April you’ll notice clusters of them flowering in parks and neighborhoods throughout the city.  Western tanagers, orioles, black-headed grosbeak, Nashville warblers, and cedar waxwings love feeding on the nectar rich blooms.
