Toyon

Be on the lookout for scenes like this.  Toyon is a native shrub with clusters of bright red berries that ripen in the fall and winter.  It is becoming increasingly common as a landscape plant in SoCal.  Overwintering Cedar Waxwings, Robins, and Hermit Thrushes rely on them as a food source.  This photo, of a Cedar Waxwing, was taken by Merryl Edelstein at Rancho Los Cerritos.
