A Dusting in March

This year’s winter in Nashville has not been much of a winter as far as snow fall. So far we have only received 1” of snow and last year we received only 0.4”. On average we normally get 8-11 inches a year. Sunday we woke to a dusting and I decided to get the camera out and take a few shots in the 10 acre woods.
I found this tree wandering around the woods. Who lives here? Looks like the tree is hollow and some animal has set home with the welcome mat being the leaves.
About 3 feet above the active hole was a woodpecker hole. I bet this woodpecker thought the tree was hollow at this level, but found out he had mis-calculated. No bugs today!
After a closer inspection..........
I discovered a nut had been stuffed into the hole, a well polished acorn nut. Looks like the squirrels are doing well this year.
I ended the walk at a red cedar tree! Not a bad ending to a March dusting.

  1. Let's see what's here. Deer, turkeys, squirrels, fox, bobcat, resident hawk, turkey vultures, ducks, bear (in the trash can), and even a mountain lion. Yup, I think that's it.
