my understanding is that many birds often do this to warm up that leg and get some blood flow going to the limb again.

LOL. It was quite a balancing act! I had to look twice myself. The bird was just resting one leg for a moment. (reply...)

Peter, 

Painting a deck, listening to the radio this weekend and out of the blue came the moving interview on Unreserved with you and Jodie Ashini.
It was wonderful to hear.

One circle closed, another one opened.
What a wonderful move.

I wanted to reach out and tell you how much I enjoyed hearing about it. Googled you and ended up here.

So, on the White Pine and the Moose post you made in 2012:
How did your exclosures work?
Any more pine trees or seedlings found since?
