Bird feeders, Ma Nature's version

Tree trunks, living or "dead" (although they're never really dead until they've crumbled into dust. And then they're part of the next generation of living things) keep the forest full of happy bird chatter.

Feeding stations, in still-active trees:

Sapsucker holes in wild cherry, still leafing out.

A closer look.

And in one past the visibly-alive stage:

Here, the food would be ants or grubs burrowing through the wood.


Los troncos de los árboles sean vivos o "muertos" — aunque nunca están verdaderamente muertos hasta que se hayan desintegrado por completo. Y entonces forman parte de la vida nueva del bosque — estos troncos llenan el bosque de cantos alegres de los pájaros.

Fotos: unos cerezos salvajes, todavía produciendo hojas, con su red de agujeros producidos por pájaros chupasavias.

Y un tronco ya sin señales de vida, con hoyos más profundos. Aquí, la comida buscada sera hormigas, gusanos o larvas que viven dentro de la madera.

I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
