Sightings
Walking Rocks?

Query: When I was in Death Valley earlier this year, I saw some enormous 750-pound rocks that appear to travel across the desert on their own. I remembered your article about rock tortoises, and wondered if that’s what these rocks could be?

Corn of Plenty (Part 4 of 4): A Field Guide by Dr. Midas Welby

Corns of the Air: Air-corns utilize their horns for jousting, playing tic-tac-toe, and spearing food in mid-flight. Air-corns often lurk undetected in trees, wood piles, and rain gutters. When bored, they use their horns to ring the doorbells of unsuspecting humans. When the door begins to open, the air-corn flies away.

Pine Cone Feeders

A Present For Imaginaries: When winter comes, I get concerned about providing extra shelter from the elements for Imaginaries. Recently, I read about people who build wildlife brush shelters out of branches and plants in their yards, and thought this was a great idea.

I started collecting branches and rocks and stuff to build a shelter, but my dad told me our community doesn’t allow brush shelters in our yards

At first I was disappointed, but my dad said that we were going to get a cut Christmas tree this year, and after the holidays, he’s leave the tree in our back yard for the rest of the winter if I wanted, instead of grinding it up right away to use as garden mulch in the spring.

I thought that cutting down a tree for Christmas might harm the forest, but Mom explained that our tree would come from a tree farm, where it was grown for just this purpose.

Now I’m really excited about Christmas, and not just because of the presents, but because we’ll be able to provide shelter for animals in our yard this winter.

I’ve decided I’m going to decorate the tree for the animals by making bird-feeder pine cones. Bird-feeder pine cones are easy to make. First, I tie a long, strong string tightly around one end of a pine cone. Next, I smear the pine cone with a bunch of peanut butter, pushing it into the cone. Then I roll it all in birdseed, and put the pine cones in a plastic bag in the freezer until I’m ready to use them.

Once the Christmas tree is out in the yard, I can tie the pine cones to its branches, so that any creatures that come and visit, real or Imaginary, will have something to eat. Mom reminds me that once it starts to get warm, I’ll have to take down any bird-feeder pine cones that still have peanut butter on them, because the peanut butter can go bad in warm weather, but I hope the pine cones will be picked clean by then. - YARROW, an Iranigami fan
