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.
