Seeds on the snow Feb 2007


Originally uploaded by Camp Naturalist.

I have been noticing that there are quite a few tree seeds on the snow. This one is from a waver ash tree. Our waver ash trees seem to be favorites of ground hogs that can often be found munching away on this in the fall.

This red fluffy seed is from a staghorn sumac. These are edible by humans, and they can be but in boiling water to make a tea. I have seen blue jays eating these in the winter when there probably isn’t much else to eat.


This winged seed is from an ash tree I believe.
