Artist's Description

Improvise, Adapt and Overcome
In this image the upper and lower sections of Yosemite Falls can be clearly seen. The middle falls is slightly hidden.
However, today’s story is about improvising, adapting and overcoming. Our story begins with the old dead tree in the foreground. The tree is used by the acorn woodpecker, a noisy black and white bird with a bright red cap. This bird doesn’t bore its holes to find insects instead he does so to store its cache of acorns. Each hole has to be precise in order for the acorn to fit. If the hole is too large the bird will remove the acorn and find another hole. It wasn’t long before bears learned about the tree and began stealing the woodpecker’s cache. So the bird adapted and overcame the problem by not storing their acorns below 6 or 7 feet so that would be out of the bear’s reach. Pretty smart for a bird brain. LOL
