Description

Identification came the hard way. I pulled this vine from the boards of our new fence without paying attention to what it was. Pictures show the young red leaves still growing, the dried leaves I pulled and dropped, and the signature hairy vine. This was seen in my suburban yard for the first time in over 10 years, so I suspect it was transported in by the fence installation guys the previous summer.

Found this fluffy feather in a bush this morning. Would love to have seen the bird it came from.

This was a pretty neat experience -- a group of 50+ Mississippi kites circled right over me and then landed in these trees. :)
