California Ecosystems - Nuthatches in the Jeffrey Pines

Regular price $1,000.00

Jeffrey Pine (Pinus jeffreyi) needles are eaten by caterpillars of the Pandora Moth (Coloradia pandora). In turn, the caterpillars are food for the White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis tenuissima). The moth pupae ("piagi") are a traditional food for the Mono people of the Eastern Sierra. Many indigenous people also eat Jeffrey Pine nuts.
