What are you boys looking at?

What are you boys looking at?  Jack says, “look there’s a bird on that tree”.

The recent storms have left many downed trees and broken branches on the ground.  The up-side of all the broken tree limbs is that it exposes potential foraging sites for woodpeckers, like this female Pileated Woodpecker in Alison’s backyard.  (All photos courtesy of co-blogger Alison).

  1. Wow, Sue, you really nailed that first shot of the Pileated Woodpecker. I hear them occasionally, but have never gotten more than a quick glimpse of one of them, except for the one time I saw one hanging on a suet feeder though the window at a nature center.

    • Alison actually took the photo, not me. I accidentally deleted a short paragraph of explantation about where these photos came from.

  2. NIce pictures, cool series of shots. You are lucky to get both the male and female in one shot, that’s cool. We also have a family of Pileated Woodpeckers that live near by but they don’t stay around long for me to get pictures. I finally got one good shot this week, check out my one pictures.

    You got some really nice pictures on your site.

    • Thanks, Michael. And I see that you have some really nice photos on your blog as well. Thanks for including the reference to it. I’ll definitely check back from time to time.
