Snow Birds

01 Feb

365–Day 32 Late this morning the many birds that reside in the trees behind my home swarmed the feeders. It had rain and snowed most of the night. The wind was very cold. The feeder is along the north fence so as to blog that treacherous north wind. From time to time, this beauty swooped down onto the fence and hopped onto the feeder. The smaller birds darted onto the snow while the female cardinal completely ignored his arogance.

    Is that a woodpecker? We have a few of them around here, they make noise at me in the mornings. You captured him wonderfully, and his head is so bright!

    Yes, S, he is a woodpecker. I see him on occasion in the big tree behind my house. I often hear him. He’s been up at the feeder before when I don’t have my camera. Today he was there posing just for me. I wish he was not tucking his underside in so much.

    He looks content. And well fed!

    That is possibly the cutest woodpecker I’ve seen. We get woodpeckers here, but not this kind (I’m in Wales, UK.)

    Thank you so much, Val, for your visit and kind comment. I am sure that this beauty of a bird, would greatly appeciate your appeciation of him too! I’m popping over to read yours.

    Wonderful shot! I adore woodpeckers and don’t see them nearly often enough. I used to see a pair of downy woodpeckers that would visit the river birch in my backyard quite often but I’ve moved since then and miss them.
