The Amazing Serviceberry Tree

The serviceberry, also known as Juneberry, seems like a perfect tree. It has clusters of lovely white flowers in the spring, ripening into deep red berries, followed by green foliage which ends up providing blazing color in the fall.

The Berries

What I love the most are the birds that it has attracted this year! More than what I’ve sketched here, but these are the ones I could easily identify or get a photo of.

It was literally a berry party every day, until finally, the poor tree was bare!

My favorite sighting was a blur of brilliant yellows and oranges, an oriole!
