I went walking in my neighborhood. These bugs covered one corner of a six foot fence and spread out more sparely farther down.

Hi deewally,
This aggregation of immature nymphs and winged adult Red Shouldered Bugs,
Jadera haematoloma, is soaking up the winter sun.  They are often found in association with goldenrain trees, and they are sometimes called Goldenrain Tree Bugs.
