    • Live oaks produce male flowers called catkins that bloom in hanging clusters.
    • Some varieties shed pollen from the male catkins before the female flowers are receptive, and so require pollen from another variety with a later pollen maturation date.
    • They also eat fruits, berries, twigs, leaves, catkins, and seeds.
    • Pin oaks produce drooping wind-pollinated male flowers called catkins; the female flowers come in groups of one to three just as the leaves begin to unfold.
    • In winter, they are most readily observed feeding in trees with catkins, such as birch and alder.
