Black Cottonwood
Populus balsamifera trichocarpa

This picture is of part of a large branch that fell during a powerful windstorm last winter. I was a little surprised to see the leaves and catkins coming out despite the fact that the branch had not been attached to the tree for some months.

Location: Lincoln Street Woods, Sitka, Alaska

Previous: Dowitcher (Limnodromus sp.)
