Francesca and Walter came to visit the sanctuary for the first time in the 20 years that they have lived here. I think they fell in love with as well. Not as many in the air when I arrived at 1300 although the temps were about the same as 10/17. However, there were clusters starting to form in the middle of the pines. My estimate is 400 by the time I left at 1500. They also were clustering back in the Euc at the front and some in the cypress as well. None along the Euc on the left side all the way down to Grove Ave. And the clusters were getting bigger while we watched. There were as many as 20 people there at one time looking.
I will be interested to see where they are tomorrow.
