Woodpecker Holes In The Coulter Pine

Coulter Pine With Wood Pecker Holes

This coulter pine has accumulated many years of holes burrowed in its trunk. Years ago when my grandma was visiting us up in the mountains, she wanted to know why someone was doing construction at the crack of dawn. We giggled and explained that woodpeckers sound like construction workers with nails and hammers as they punch holes in trees. I forgot my memory card and was unable to capture a better video of the woodpecker attacking the tree, but I think you can hear him. Someone claimed there was nothing in the video, but if you look closely, you can see the woodpecker. Also, turn up the sound because you can definitely hear him.

On a recent trip to the mountains I forgot my memory card and was unable to capture a better video of the woodpecker attacking the tree, but I think you can hear him. Someone claimed there was nothing in the video, but if you look closely, you can see the woodpecker. Also, turn up the sound because you can definitely hear him.

The Little Palm Tree

This palm tree planted itself near a set of abandoned railroad tracks, and it is replenished when the nearby storm drain fills up after a rainstorm.

There is a little palm tree near a storm drain, and the  planted itself there. I always enjoy looking at this palm, which is replenished after rain and snowstorms. There is something to be said for how nature chooses to landscape itself.

 

 

The Cedar Tree

I have been a busy bee with my other blogs, so I have not been as active here. However, here is an intriguing picture I captured of a cedar tree today.

At lunch today I went for a walk in the park, and I captured some photos with my cell phone. Google has an app where they take your photos, and create some really cool images for you, which showed up when I signed into my account. This particular park is very special because there are many tall trees in it, and it reminds me a bit of the mountains.
