UC-Berkeley Botanical Garden – updated

Today I went to the UC Botanical Garden (Berkeley,CA) to see what early season flowers have started to bloom. I spent most of the time in the California Natives and Asian sections. Species in bloom included several Wild Currents, California Poppies, several Ceanothus, Dutchman’s Pipe, Fremont’s Death Camus, several Manzanitas, California Poppy,  couple of Wallflower species, Erythronium sp.,Trillium, and Rhododendrons. There is also a fair amount of bloom in the South African section.

Although I focused on flowers today, birds I noticed included Scrub Jay, Spotted Towhee, Anna’s Hummingbird, California Towhee, and Raven.

Here are some photos from today. You can larger high quality versions of the photos on Flickr
