An American black crow, house finch, and a pair of northern cardinals. At one point I observed a male cardinal feeding a female. I’ve seen male cardinals feeding juvenile cardinals before. Is this springtime courtship behavior?
I have two sycamore trees that frame my backyard. Theses are a few shots of the sycamore seed balls (pods). One by itself, one that a squirrel is checking out, and the final one of a black crow watching me from the tree. Unfortunately, the limbs on these trees are pretty brittle, and every winter more branches come down. I will see how much they block the solar panels on the south side of the house later this spring as the leaves emerge.
