another greenroof book (chapter 2 is my favorite)

predation

I saw a pinyon jay try to eat a white (cabbage?) moth on a roof today. Unfortunately, I interrupted the meal with my picture-taking.  The traps are also coming back really full, so we can only wonder how much of our catch we are sharing with the birds at this point.

New season and new interns!



This picture's from a few weeks ago, but we started our season early this year.  We got the traps out by the end of March because it warmed up early here this year...

Beautiful Multnomah County roof

These pictures don't do this place justice. Different zones with different species. Amazing View.They even grow produce and donate it. Check out the apple tree (fruiting right along the stem)!
