The Birds and the Bees

Ducks, pheasant and turkeys nest on the ground.

Robins prefer fruit trees.

Orioles usually nest in elm trees.

Honeybees are usually found in old Sugar Maples.

Yellowjackets prefer nesting in dry sandy ground or old tires.

Wasps are found beneath eves and below the front seat of old, aluminum boats.

Any questions son?

Note:  I just got whacked by a couple of wasps that were not where they were supposed to be.

  1. The demise of meadow larks and bobwhite quail is directly attributable to the fire ant. In the late 50s, both the meadow lark and the bobwhite quail had healthy populations in Louisiana. Then, the fire ant got loose and colonized the South. Ground-nesters didn't stand a change. The ants would invade a nest, eat the eggs, and in just a couple of years, the bobwhite quail and the meadow low lark were endangered across the state. I haven't seen a meadow lark since the mid 60s.
