Nature's Wonder

Sunday, July 19, 2009

I just love the little Sparrows that hang around, and other wild birds as well. I have bird feeders out in the front, and back yards for them. In the winter, I order dried meal worms, so they can still get the nutrition that they need. And what have the wild birds done for us? They drop seeds. Tree seeds, mock orange bush seeds. Nothing like having freebies growing in your yard! Epically the trees. They are not full grown yet, but they are pretty. I'm not sure what type of trees they are. Does anybody know?

    This morning, I saw several hummingbirds (they are attracted by a red flower bush). You are right, we are lucky to be able to watch birds around us ! emoticon

    I love the birds too. We feed them year 'round but the only trees that they drop are on my vehicles. When I transplant them, they usually don't grow either. Maybe because they come off in the carwash water. LOL

    Sorry, I don't have a green enough thumb to know what kind of tree you are speaking of. Cute dog, though.

    Jeanne,

    This may be a sassafras tree. It looks like there are differenct types of leaves here and a sassafras has 3 different types: the single leaf, a double leaf that looks like a mitten with the thumb pointed out and a three-pronged leaf that looks like a mitten with two thumbs. If you take a leaf off and taste the end of the leaf that was attached to the tree it tastes like sassafras if you've ever had sassafras tea. Well, that's my guess! What do other Sparkers think? emoticon

    Looks like "dog"wood (see beautiful cutie in picture) emoticon

    I've not seen this type of tree before as they probably don't grow in our part of the country. They're pretty though.

    Do the birds also provide free fertilizer?
