Whitebark pines dominate the high mountain forests of the northern Rockies, Cascade Range, and Sierra Nevada. These trees live in a tough environment. constant wind dries out needles and soil, and a blizzard can occur in any month of the year. Yet the trees persist with help from a noisy gray bird. Clark's Nutcrackers pry open the whitebark cones, tuck the fat-laden seeds into a special pouch beneath their tongues, then fly off to a clearing where they will bury the seeds. This is the birds' food supply. Seed that are not eaten may grow into the next generation of whitebark pines.
The image for this puzzle was adapted from a painting commissioned by the Crater Lake Institute.
This puzzle comes with a numbered key drawing and corresponding list to help you understand the painting better. It also features an interpretive essay by the artist that takes you on a nature walk right in your own home.
