Description

This is the first time I've seen them here since I moved in 5 years ago. And I'm surprised that they're here in the suburbs. Flocks of them were frequent, but not constant, residents where I lived in Loma Prieta, where they were very easily spooked by human activity, just walking out the house door would send the whole flock off in a kerfuffle from the top of a fruiting madrone reasonably far away. While the pigeons in Campbell are still skittish, they're much closer and less bothered by us. And they like to hang out in the coast live oak.

This was an interesting scene... This cluster of aphids, being tended by ants, while at the top of the plant were multiple lady beetles, at least 2 species. Were they being kept from eating the aphids by the ants? I didn't see any altercations, but wonder about the dynamic.

Wish I would have gotten better photos, they either turned away behind the twig, or fluttered madly while still on the twig, seemed strange, eventually flew off. At a seep.
