Making a Living

A few years ago, Connie spotted this sign on this long dead tree we passed on our walk up on Sunset Mountain. Neither of us had heard the word, which I’m sure a lot of birders and other naturalist types know. Turns out it’s a dead tree left standing to decompose naturally for birds and other critters to make a living with. But what a great sentence to come across in the middle of the woods. And may we always leave snags for the woodpeckers.
