“...seasoned Californians love the chaparral at all times of the year – when it is brown and rusty in late summer, as well as when the winter rains have brought out the greens of the different foliages. ...there will be other things besides the growth of shrubs to amuse you. All day long you will have the alluring companionship and conversation of wren tits."
