Today in my sit spot I took the time to notice and ponder why tree bark varies from species to species. Bark protects the inner workings of the tree but what occurred to me today is the interrelated-ness between bark type and insect eating birds. Certain bark attracts certain bugs upon which certain birds eat. Said birds also eat the seeds from the tree then spread those seeds by flying and pooping out the seed in other places. So there is a complete lifecycle dictated by the bark on each type of tree or at least that is how my pondering went today in my sit-spot!
