I can report twonew birds this week, one of them a Hummingbird my son saw on the Yarrow flowers this afternoon while we were sitting outside visiting (but I missed).
The other is a Red-tailed Hawk that has been screeching in the sky - one of the easy bird calls to recognize. Then it flew quite low right over our heads.
The mystery tree is a puzzle to me, even though I did write a little tree guide. The leaves look for all the world like Sumac leaves, but it's a tree 40 or 50 feet tall. The trunk has smooth bark, and the seeds are somewhat like maple keys.
Can anyone help?
It's been a beautiful day here, more people outside than I've ever seen.
