Early Spring Uschi

From very early spring,...
Last years tall grass (brown) stands above
the grasses and flowers that now dominate.

Uschi climbing a birch tree.

Beautiful shot -- clouds, trees, grass - wow. and Uschi up the tree. do you have to mow the dry grass? and is that a nest in the tops of the other trees to the left?

I maintain trails around the property, rather than mow all of it regularly,... Every year I mow a different part of the tall grass areas such that everything gets mowed every few years. This has created/maintained an Oak Savanna (grassland) habitat which is good for wildflowers, insects, birds, critters, and Bengals.

I don't think that is a nest, but it has been up there for a long time. The Oak grove is full of woodpeckers, and many other species of birds.
