First, I would like to give you your second cardinal photo of the day. This is a new visitor, coming several times a day now. He has a bit of molt action going on. I’ve heard him singing up a storm nearby. Hopefully he’ll find a missus and settle down right here.
But then, as I was writing something I will be posting later, I caught something out of the corner of my eye.
This is Mr. Pileated Woodpecker. He is the size of a small Pterodactyl.
Behold Dryocopus pileatus.
This is about ten feet away from me at my desk.
SLOWLY I reach for the camera and start shooting. I also used a flash and that is how I got this one.
That suet cake was paid for by your donations. As a matter of fact the only way they eat is by your donations.
THANKS DONORS for this heart-attack!
