You can see that they are putting out new leaves! They are evergreen oak so I guess they do this when they get water...
Maybe there are some bee hives in here... bees mean honey you know... but no such luck.
But... I did find something else... Do you see it? Way on top of that tree in the distance? A little white speck...
How about now?
It's a bald eagle!! Cool! They hang out here a lot and that tree is one of their favourite trees. So I made note of it and headed off into the bush to see if I could find a stray tail feather or wing feather....
This is the tree right behind me but there were no feathers. Sigh... Although, my fleece jacket did pick up a ridiculous amount of burrs along the way.
It's a nice view from in here.
Don't you love the ocean? It always looks soooo beautiful in the sunshine.
Ah-hah... another hollow stump... still no bee hives though.
But that's OK... it's just nice to be out and about in the fall sunshine.
