Autumn Reds

We call these highbush cranberries in eastern North America and they are a type of viburnum. I have one planted that does poorly one year and well the next, not the most attractive specimen. Birds have done their job though and spread it's seeds well giving me lots of bushes in the wild parts of the property.

Starlings' delight!
Care MacADNski: Yes, the starlings are my guess as to who will eat them.
I can imagine the birds love these Mary.
Care MacADNski: They eat these about halfway through winter.
The berries and Fall leaves are certainly attractive! I love your presentation!
I played this song on the Chromaharp when I was a kid!
Care MacADNski: One of my very favorite songs! The berries colour the landscape until late January and the birds then feast on them all over a day.
Jolies provisions pour les oiseaux.
Care MacADNski: A mid winter treat for them.

Very nice to look at, and good bird food too..
Care MacADNski: The berries seem to get eaten a bit past mid-winter then all disappear in a day.

Important source of food for the birds in winter. We have a huge berry tree (don't know what it is called) laden with berries just waiting for the winter Thrushes to come in from Scandinavia
Care MacADNski: Another popular bird berry is the mountain ash. They have an orange berry that is very popular. They are all wonderful in the landscape.
Some fine shots here Mary
Care MacADNski: Much obliged, Bill.

They look a charming translucent colour.
Care MacADNski: They are and I actually find them hard to photograph in a macro.
They are very picture worthy Mary, I really like this presentation.
Care MacADNski: Again, I didn't have to leave home. I love living where I do!
Looks like a good crop this year!

I should think that this is an important source of food in winter. Glad you have plenty of bushes for the birds.
