The Hasquite tree
The Hasquite tree seems the
perfect tree for many hill country birds.
Mockingbirds could sit in the top and survey the area while
They could drop down into the leafier part and have good
spots for nests.
In the sring there are Mesquite flowers. In spring and
In the fall there are a few mesquite beans.
Of course, I've never seen any birds in it at all.
Even though I walk past it every other day.
It has a nice spiral double hackberry-mesquite trunk.
And if you look close, it has a dark halo around it, in this picture
Great Blue Herons, vultures, Mockingbirds, barn swallows and nighthawks
fly over it.
One of these days, I'll see a bird in it.
