Harvest season

The last of the loquats are being consumed, by day and by night, and the branches are no longer sweeping the ground with the weight of the fruit. This is the best year ever for these fruits, both in quantity and in size of the fruit. If any orchard orioles came through, we didn't see them. We have been seeing a male and a female red-bellied woodpecker, right outside the window, in one of the loquat trees, obviously finding some insect delicacy among the shriveling and partly eaten remaining fruits.
