The tree I am speaking of is OLD and large Red Mulberry and has a good bunch of squaw-wood (dead wood) at the bottom. Next to it, is a young Black Locust and a very large dead Elm. When the mulberries ripen in May. Some years earlier than others. I was astounded how may species of birds come to eat the fruit on this tree.

I spent an entire morning in May in a camp shirt and dark green hat on, about 40-50 feet from this Mulberry Tree with a hand-held Canon 50D with a Canon EF400L f/5.6 Lens snapping photos left and right on this amazing tree’s visitors.

Here are a few:

It is sunny and windy  at 76F degrees; the dew point is 66F (very humid); I expect several rounds of severe weather including tornados today and again tomorrow. Tomorrow will be worse for tornados because of the forecast wind change with altitude.  Look out in Arkansas.

The bluebirds continue building and laying eggs in 3 of my bluebird houses; they feed each other as they work. Thus morning a saw the first Yellow Rumped Warbler (myrtle) in spring breeding colors. They spend winter here but become the color of a sparrow.

The flowing photos taken with a Canon 1DS Mark III with a Canon EF600L f/4 IS Lens on a tripod:
