Last year when we moved to our new home I noticed many of the trees had been damaged by pests. This year I got to watch the devastation first hand. These new leaves are not more than a few weeks old and here is how they look.What's really weird is that about a week ago I noticed that when I walked down the driveway through the woods, it sounded like it was raining, even though it wasn't.At that time the forces of evil were almost too small to see.But in no time they grew to a visible size.This one is not as common as the rest so I'm not sure if he is on my enemy list.But this little one is in grave danger if he is in my reach. Sadly they are all the way up to the very tops of the trees.The rotten so and so's.What was that sound of rain in the woods?...this...If anyone reading this blog has ever raised a Monarch butterfly from a caterpillar you know that the more they eat, the more they poop and the bigger they get the bigger the poop. That "rain" I hear is caterpillar poop falling from the trees!! I'd bet you anything!! It's still raining even though it's sunny each day.
(the black dots, on the trash can lids...Poop!)And all I can do is hope and pray for more birds!!Calling all Tanagers, Warblers, Cuckoos and Woodpeckers!!
