With this division of interest, she ends up reading a book in a park some where while I am off in the trees, and then I sit is a café while she wanders the parks, churches and town squares! No matter where we are there just always seems to be a bird or two around. Case in point, last week Jeanne wandered around the historic areas, ands I sat under a tree, watching the Hummingbirds, Western Tanagers, Yellow-rumped Warblers, and Gila Woodpeckers all flying in and out of a very old tree in the middle of church courtyard. The church had started it construction in the 1700's, so this tree had to be very old, but just how much so I have no way of telling.
This Gila Woodpecker found some kind of white sappy stuff that it dug out and ate.
