South Hills: the unique lodgepole pine cones (note the relatively large distal scales that act to deter crossbills from getting access to underlying seeds - compare to the cones in the next set of photos where red squirrels are present), mistnetting, measuring, and recording South Hills crossbills, and the South Hills.

 

Red squirrel foraging on a lodgepole pine cone, the surface of a squirrel midden, lodgepole pine forest, nonserotinous and serotinous lodgepole pine cones, and a lodgepole pine seedling growing after a recent fire.
