I wonder how much we contribute to the wild with animals and birds carrying off the seed and berries later on.
Here's a question: Once birds digest the seed, is the seed destroyed? I've always had mixed opinions from people.
I bet they do more than we think.Now the bigger birds like turkeys you would think that the smaller seed get ate whole and have a better chance.Same with chipmonks.If they take the seed and don't hide it to deep in the soil and don't eat it over winter.I guess you got to wonder....
It's a proven fact...If you make a pond and DON'T stock it,It will have fish in it within 5 years.The reason is the (water fowl) will stock it for you.The fish eggs/fry get stuck on feathers and feet.When the Ducks start pond hopping thats how the fish get transfered..
Those roots were gettin a lot of sun so they were lookin kinda rough and they fell over as soon as I touched em but anything on the lower 2/3 of the hills and in plenty of shade is hanging in there pretty good. I was glad we finally got some rain last week and I feel like that will carry them on up into October now. How bout out your way?
