John Hall frequently photographs his mid-Missouri surroundings, and he has been sharing his images with the Missourian for several years.
This set of photos basically show a tree being dismantled and a bunch of birds coming around to check on what happened to their habitat.

This story is part of a section of the Missourian called From Readers, which is dedicated to your voices and your stories. We hope you'll consider sharing. Here's how. Supervising editor is Joy Mayer.
