Bird’s Eye View and Phenological Changes

Since the first assignment at my Phenology site, there have been many noticeable changes on the environment.  One of these is a renewed activation of what must be a woodpecker. One tree central to the site has been providing habitat and food source for a woodpecker, but it wasn’t until this last visit that I realized the woodpecker was still local and active. Here are photos of old (right) pecking sites and the new (left) one for reference:

One of the largest changes my site of Phenology has developed over this last month is in its foliage, as canopy leaves have begun to change color and fall into the under story. However, as most of the site is comprised of Coniferous, softwood trees, the foliage colors are minimal and most of the ground cover is comprised of pine needles instead of leaves.
