This chickadee found a crevice in this alder. The core of the tree is rotting so the chickadee was doing some excavating to make a home for it’s nest.
Random shots from our walk
A large thistle just starting to make it’s appearance
One half of a slab of a burned out cedar tree. It has been standing for years but this winter has started to lean and probably won’t be up much longer. It is about 20 feet (6 meters) tall and 3.2 feet (1 meter) wide.
Forest debris in the burned stump
A cedar and hemlock tree getting close
Cedar remnant from the old logging days in the early 1900’s. Slots for the springboards that the loggers stood on can still be seen in the center and left hand side of the trunk. The loggers would saw the tree while standing on the board. They liked to cut high up the trunk to avoid the wider flare at the base.
