Kim Johnson has started an April challenge here: Just for Fun. Trees is the subject.
The attached photo is a Tulip Poplar tree in my backyard. You can see a few blooms that are tulip shaped. The blooms contain seeds the birds love to eat. The tulip shaped blooms is where the name originated. If you look closely you can see a baby bluebird! This was taken last year. I watch the babies fledge from the nest and they immediately fly away. Amazing they know how to fly straight from the nest. I watch closely to try to see where they go. Usually they leave the yard but eventually follow the parents back into the yard. It is rare to get a photo at this age as the parents are closeby at all times. Another little thing to share, at no extra charge to enjoy!
Do you see the baby bird in the tree?
