We have been nurturing some live oaks in our front yard, waiting for them to get large enough that we can cut down our last eucalyptus. (We need the shade or we'd have cut it already.) We also planted some oaks and the jays planted some acorns below our house and some of them are growing. So we will someday have a small grove of live oaks along one side of the house.
In answer to my "plant it and they will come" philosophy, we had a Nuttall's woodpecker visit our yard yesterday. This is the first one we've seen. No telling if this was his first or a return visit, but it was nice to see him. We've read that they prefer oak woodlands. In a few more years maybe we'll see them regularly.
