    Stored by Acorn Woodpeckers

      Acorn Woodpecker / A common bird of western oak forests, it lives in extended family groups. All members spend hours storing thousands of acorns in carefully tended holes in trees and telephone poles. One granary tree may have up to 50,000 holes in it, each of which is filled with an acorn in autumn.

    Not sure how I feel about this. Carving on a dead tree is one thing, but cutting into it when it's still growing? Still, quite beautiful.

    The paper bird and the girl who gave it all away

    Sometimes, living this complex human life, I need these reminders that nature still works the same way it has worked for eons. Sometimes, a picture like this, of a humble bird's nest perched amid twigs, is indescribably beautiful.


    Osmia Avosetta are solitary bees that build their nests by biting petals off of flowers, flying them back one by one, and gluing them together often using nectar as glue. Each nest is a papermache work of art that houses a single bee egg.

    In late April, the ground becomes littered with samaras, the winged seeds of maple trees. With the right wind, the single-winged "whirlybirds" can carry the tree's embryos more than a mile.
