Woodpecker

Preparing a woodpecker for winter.
First he finds a dead tree and starts making holes for the acorns. Each hole is made very thoughtfully, because if the hole is large, other birds can easily steal the acorn. If the hole is narrow, the nut can break and deteriorate. By the end of summer, the woodpecker’s “jewelry” work ends, by this time the acorns ripen and take their places in the tree. The trunk of a large tree can hold about 50,000 acorns, allowing the bird a satisfying winter

What’s for dinner? Arctic foxes in Svalbard, Norway, well adapted to the harsh environment, will eat whatever’s available. During the summer, that’s rodents (like voles and lemmings), birds, birds’ eggs, and fish. They will even eat berries, and they don’t dislike seaweed. During the winter, when prey animals are scarcer, the foxes often scavenge carcasses left by wolves and even polar bears—or dig up food they buried during the summer. @NatGeo

Magpie

Black-billed magpies can be spotted year round from southern Alaska through much of the west and even as far east as Wisconsin. These opportunistic feeders can be spotted eating carrion and foraging for a variety of fruits, insects, grains and seeds.

Separation

They say pictures speak a million words, that’s what this pic does. It cries out millions of painful emotions, but are the humans listening?


Exploiting nature has become a common scenario everywhere. Look at the two souls getting separated and still trying to hold on to to the very last second trying to find some peace in it.


One of the strongest animals on the planet but unfortunately not as strong as the cunning mind of humans, the masterminds of destruction..!!
