Perhaps the termites like this location because it is so close to the rotting wood of the old cattle chute.
Perhaps the birds like to perch on the cattle chute rail because it would be easy to see and eat the termites as they enter or exit from their nest. At least I hope that the birds eat the termites. Someone needs to eat them.
On our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week we are showing photos from a recent visit of mine to the Hotel Del Coronado in Coronado, California. Come take a look at the Victorian charm and ideal beach weather.
