Seen on UC Santa Barbara campus.

Definitely a coral tree, though I'm not sure which species, and I know there are at least two different species growing on campus (this one with bright red seeds, and a hummingbird-pollinated one with wood-grain seeds). Did you see the leaf shape, or if it has thorns? Erythrina caffra is a common one in San Diego, so this may be that, too.

Thank you for your thoughtful response. I just added two more photos of the same tree. I don't recall any thorns and can't see any in the photos. Difficult to discern the shape of the leaves from my not-so-sharp photo.

It seems to match the Caffra ID here:
