#treetuesday by @old-guy-photos

This past summer a big Pileated woodpecker was visiting this old Hemlock tree almost every single day and continuously pecked away at it.

I was most curious. I peeled off a big piece of old dead bark and instantly I saw many many big black carpenter ants.
I'm thinking that's why the woodpecker was doing so much excavating

For quite awhile I kept seeing a Chipmunk go in and out of the large opening. Sure looks like a great place for some small critter to hibernate.

Beech tree leaves.
The Beech trees are the last to lose all their leaves. Some of the leaves stay attached all Winter long. On windy frigid days they make a distinctive fluttering frozen leaf sound.
