Bird Fruit

One of the earliest flowering shrubs in the Bella Coola Valley is the Black Twinberry (Lonicera involucrata).  It flowers early and subsequently fruits early and they are now ripe. They are nasty tasting, but the Cedar Waxwings really enjoy them (it gets them all primed for when the cherry crops are ready in a few weeks!).

The weather was great again today, partially cloud, but with plenty of warm sunny spells to make the 20 C feel like the perfect outdoor temperature.  Grizzly
