Saturday scenes and scenery:
Birds of spring

1quail-in-bush.jpg
This California quail called out repeatedly, wanting to be seen. Presumably there was a nest somewhere near by.

The young heron seemed oblivious to being seen, ambling across an open space in Golden Gate Park.

The pigeon had got itself trapped inside the fancy food court at the San Francisco Ferry Building. It didn't seem very concerned. As you can see, it was a glorious day outside.

Not really a bird -- we were glad to get to enjoy this bloom after we carried it inside. Often they get snatched from our garden just as they are emerging; we think they turn up decorating local restaurants.

I love your photo of the Bird of Paradise plant. I have had several and they are among my favorites.
