I was intrigued by the growth over this hole in the tree. Later I heard a chirp of a Red-bellied Woodpecker and followed the sound to the source, I discovered it was a current home with the male inside. He was staying in touch with his mate, perhaps wanting to go and get something to eat for himself, as she may have been doing. A sprinkle was falling so it was hard to point my camera for very long at the home clear up in a tree. I waited for any change and she never showed up, maybe aware of my presence on the ground, and not wanting to give away their home.
Meanwhile out at the farm.....
This is an old cemetery I have been looking for. There are no roads into it, just a path for the mowers to get in.It was started in 1856, and contains many of the family members my street was named after.
