2013 Bark Matters

During the 2013 nesting season, Big Red (and sometimes Ezra) could often be seen bringing back bark to tuck into the nest bowl. One of our wonderful BOGs, sully7140, tracked down and took photos of BR's "shredding tree". Chatters debated from time to time whether the tree was a Bald Cypress, Dawn Redwood, etc. Unfortunately the tree was cut down later in the year. Poor BR and Ez will have to think of something else next year!
