BILOXI (WLOX) -- If you're ever on Highway 90, you've probably seen the bird and fish sculptures made out of dead trees. What you may not have noticed is the resilience of those trees.

A closer look at one of the bald cypress trees, now sculpted into a pelican, shows buds blooming from a small limb. Another nearby tree also has a hint of life growing from its supposed dead trunk.

The new life was a surprise to everyone at Biloxi City Hall. The city's arborist told WLOX News that they'll let nature take its course with these suddenly sprouting trees.
