Up a _______ ? — Six Word Saturday —
My six words:
To the right you can see this little bird with the highest perch it could find. It is up at the top of the water oak tree in our front yard. This tree has acorns which drop in the late fall. (Water oak link) (Water oak pictures link)
Then for winter it keeps its leaves; meaning it stays green all year long. When spring comes it sheds the old leaves and refreshes with new shiny green ones. We mulch the old leaves with the lawn mower when we mow the grass.
Below on the left is a 'zoomed-in' view of the same picture. Click on these picture for a bit larger size.
The other picture has a wood pecker. It is a sycamore tree in the back yard. Rather, it is in the neighbor's yard but almost on the property line. It has shed its leave and bark for winter.
Do you see the wood pecker. It is approximately in the center of the picture, towards the top of the left upright branch, just before it juts to the right a bit.
The woodpecker does not have a red head. What does this mean?

look after yourself. Sincerely, Merle.
I think I need more of that in my life. Simple things
One of our trees is a favourite with blue tits, but I never seem to manage to get my camera ready in time to capture them.
I love seeing birds around us. Right now we don't see too many (gulls - we live along a river and pigeons), but in spring I do hear loads of others fortunately (for city life that is).
Thanks for playing 6WS!
