Dodger alerted me to this busy robin who came to gobble up our Christmasberries. These were taken through a screen, so they’re clearer than I had any reason to hope they’d be! (This is from my office/studio window, and the bush is about six feet from my chair!)
For oh so many years, I’ve called these shrubs, which came up as volunteers, pyracantha (or firethorn), but I think they are actually Christmasberry bushes (aka toyon or heteromeles) because of the flowers described on the pyracantha and because toyon seems perfectly suited to our climate.
Quite a stretch!
Dodger, watching the action. No kidding, he said, “Little bird lookin’ at!”
