I spent some time in the backyard. Two particular trees capture my attention. One is a bird magnet, the other is simply magnificent. This is the Tree. It has swallowed three tall palms over the years, and I do mean tall. The utility people have not chopped into it for the wires. I hope they never do.
This is the other tree, the bird magnet. It’s behind the Tree and large in its own right. This is just one small part of it. I’m horrible naming trees. If it isn’t a maple, birch, or oak, I have no idea what it is.
Two red-bellied woodpeckers were jumping around in the branches of the above tree. I believe they were male and female. These were the clearest shots I got of them; it was almost as if they knew I was taking pictures and intentionally hid behind branches or in shadows.
Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂
