Flying Cucumbers

The wind was light today but blew the snow through the trees.  I noticed something shaking about 20 feet up in the air, in the branches of a tree.  It was a wild cucumber vine, with the fruit opened and dried out.  I have never seen one that high, and it didn’t look like it had grown up there so I wondered if a bird or something else had pulled it up into the tree to eat.
