Outdoor Safety: Rattle Snake in Tree

Saw this on FB from the superb Texas Hill Country (great photography and more) and was reminded of one time on the Deschutes River when a friend pointed out a rattler in a tree near the water’s edge. I was oblivious that time, but some thirty years later I never fail to look upward too.

Brian A. Burgoyne sent this in a while back, “this rattlesnake was hanging out in the tree right by the squirrel feeder…South Austin right on the Manchaca border…suburbs!” (Texas Hill Country/FB)

Bears and rattle snakes seem to like bird and squirrel feeders. Different food sources no doubt. So, some consider it more rare for a rattle snake to be in a tree, they (the various species) have a history of doing so.

    Oh great snakes in the trees too??? Somehow the idea of walking on trails are kind of freaking me out here 😉
    Tho I live far up north, I don’t think I get rattlesnakes. But we did have a cougar roaming around town lol

    I fish a river in the SC lowcountry that you have to watch overhead for gators sunning themselves on leaning trees.
