Look for Clark's Nutcrackers in openings near extensive stands of conifer, often near timberline. They extract seeds from pine cones using their spike-like bills. Using a special pouch located underneath their tongues, they can store up to 150 seeds for transport to their hidden caches, which they will return to find even under two feet of snow. Unclaimed seeds germinate and become a new generation of pines.
