TheLorax, I'm curious as to how you became familiar with the word, bacchanal? Dictionary or experience? I've gotten the impression you're a "wild one"!
Kildale, those are wonderful pictures. We've been seeing an big increase in our eagle population over the last 20 years. One time by the river I saw 9 birds, and only three were mature, had to pull over for that one and just take it in.
I have a question as to what that is on the stems of your vine?

Not sure what you mean by vine, but if you are referring to the eagles picture, they are in a large pine tree and those are the cones.

I think NEBogger means the picture of the Bushtits, with what looks like Lonicera with a lichen of some kind.

Thanks swamp thing, that is what I meant. That's what I was wondering, if it was't a lichen type of thing.

The vine is a honeysuckle.

This is the deck during the summer. The honeysuckles are planted in the garden below the deck, which is the roof of the carport, so I would think they are about 15 feet high. You can see the things that I have set up for the birds.

I think she's still wondering what appears to be a blue green lichen or moss UPON the vine.... Does it grow naturally upon it or was it added?
