When I open the door to my home the I’m greeted with the morning chorus. I have still not been able to get them used to my presence but that’s okay. Some things take a little time. Down in the corner of my property is the overgrown honeysuckle bush. I’ve allowed it and the Forsythia bush on the other end of the yard to grow thick. The tangle of long thin branches seem to make the perfect cover for my more reclusive visitors. In addition to the bird habitat the honeysuckle bush provides me with an early bloom that lasts well into summer. Sometimes when venture into that area I’ll find the body forms of deer that have bedded down beneath the dropping branches.
The particular type of honeysuckle is winter honeysuckle. It’s not native to Appalachia but the early bloom does provide forage for pollenators early in the year when other plants ate still asleep.
As I move closer I can hear the flutter of the tiny wings as one of Chickadees plays a game of hide and seek by keeping as much of bush between us as he can. Not wanting to preserve the little guy, I zoomed in my long lens and snapped tonight’s feature image.
