Photographer's Note

I was beginning my day of work in the office when I noticed a group of birds in my persimmon tree.These are white woodpeckers (Melanerpes candidus).
I took my old camera and got this image. They were around 30 meters far.
From May to July my persimmon tree is filled with mature fruits and attract many birds, especially because it is a cold period of the year. This tree is probably the oldest tree in my city, I presume it was planted here around 1948, when the city was founded.
I make jokes with my friends saying its fruits are the "persimmons of the cardinal" because when the Cardinal João Braz de Aviz was a boy he ate these fruits, nowadays he lives in Rome. Who knows some day I could say these are the "Pope's Persimmons" ? haha.
PS: the image is something grainy...

Estava começando meu dia de trabalho no escritório quando notei esses pássaros no caquizeiro de minha casa, esses são pica-paus brancos (Melanerpes candidus). Tirei essa foto com minha câmera velha, a árvore estava a cerca de 30 metros de distância.
De maio à julho essa árvore fica cheia de frutos e como é um perído frio, atrai muitos pássaros. Creio que é a árvore mais antiga de toda a cidade e que tenha sido plantada em 1948, quando a cidade foi fundada.
Brinco com meus amigos dizendo que esses são os "caquis do cardeal" porque o cardeal João Braz de Avis, quando era menino, era meu vizinho e comia esses frutos. Hoje em dia ele vive em Roma. Quem sabe algum dia poderei dizer que são os caquis do Papa.
