Wild Bird Wednesday

Wild Bird Wednesday #43
Link to Paying Ready Attention

This little boy presented himself with a marvelously bright red nape ... could it be that he has a hot date with a pretty little "Chickie"?



Tis the Season :)

  1. Your woodpeckers are darling. We have these little guys here too. Also, we have a red bellied woodpecker that stops by our feeder now and then too. The weather is staying nice now, so it's time to put up the other feeders. We got a couple for Christmas that we've been saving for Spring. You have a fabulous day, Edna B.

  13. I'm amazed at how loud those little guys can drum when they are out to please the ladies (and scare away rivals).

  16. Great shots! These guys are usually very quick as they scamper along branches and around the tree trunks.
    Good job on catching one!
