With today's warmer weather, the bees are out in force in the orange blossoms. Hopefully not all blossoms will produce oranges, or there is the fear that limbs will snap off from the weight later in the year.
Three falcons have been seen flying together in and out of the stand of tall eucalyptus trees along the south side of Imperial Avenue east of 69th street. Gophers are now plentiful enough, churning up the ground, to support that may falcons. Sooner or later the falcons can be seen diving to the ground where the unsuspecting rodents suddenly become lunch.
