Spring observations

These observations are representative of spring in different ways. First, the Trillium Ovatum lily blooming demonstrates the coming of longer days and warmer temperatures. The abundance of honey bees in the spring is a result of the blooming flowers and pollination purposes they serve. Similarly, the Anna's Hummingbird is representative of the abundance of flowers and nectar in the spring. The Desert Cottontail eats grasses which are particularly plentiful in spring months. Finally, the American White Pelicans are a sign of warming temperatures and a migration from southern climes to northern ones.
