Pods

Juncos and Goldfinches eating the tiny seeds of the sweetgum tree.
All over the ground under several old trees.
In hand with one of the pods.
And now for something relatively different: Kentucky coffeetree pods.
So named because these seeds were once turned into an ersatz coffee. Before that, did some extinct megafauna crunch these up along with the green jelly-like goo inside the pods?
