The Brazilian Pepper bushes are a very invasive species but the Robins stop here every year, on their migration, to fill up on them.
I hadn’t seen the big flock lately and was checking the trees for them when I spotted a couple of squirrels dining on the berries.
I love to watch them running around these flimsy little branches. They are such agile little critters.
A few days ago, one was in the tops of the trees, where the branches appeared to be bare. Evidently it was feasting on the tiny new buds. Today there a few new leaves on them. 2 days of ran and the nice warm sunshine has started them leafing out.
This is a closer look at the branches in the center of the picture.
Hope we don't get another frost and lose all the nice green leaves.
