Weekend Photoblogging

Cirque du Pileum Rouge
Originally uploaded by Dixie Native

Last week on Flickr I happened upon a nice shot of an American robin dining on the fruits of the invasive Chinese tallow tree (Sapium sebiferum, also known as "popcorn tree"). A quick note to the photographer led me to a whole set of his shots of this tree, including several amazing ones of birds, such as the Pileated woodpecker shown here. Be sure to scroll down this page to view the photos and read more about Chinese tallow.

Thanks to Dixie Native for giving me permission to display this photo and for pointing me to his other shots.
