Claremont: Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden

Pipevine Swallowtail, Battus philenor
No wonder people hate California: It's January, and swallowtails are flying around.  I was surprised to see Pipevine Swallowtails in Claremont--let alone in January.
Red-shouldered Hawk, Buteo lineatus
American Robin, Turdus migratorius
Never was a bird more aptly named.  Its Hungarian name, Vándor Rigó, literally tranlates as "wandering thrush".
