Antelope Valley Wildflowers 4/11/18

There are poppies at the reserve but not like last year. You can spot them along the trails and they are now starting to bloom among the goldfields. Other plants to look for are: fiddleneck, filaree, forget-me-nots, milkvetch, blue dick, grape soda lupine, combs bur, fringe pod, wild cucumber, lacy phacelia and the beaver-tail cactus has flower buds and will be blooming soon.
Do look for birds as several have been spotted, including: horned larks, loggerhead shrikes, turkey vultures, house finches, ravens, red-tailed hawks, roadrunner, and white-crowned sparrows.
