A SUNDAY SELFIE ~ SORT OF



At least we can still enjoy our backyard bird watching during these unusual days.
And a few days ago we were treated with seeing these pileated woodpeckers
busy at an old woodpile in the back-forty.  
It's rare enough to see one of them, but a pair ... wow!  

Please check back in at Zoolatry on Tuesday or Wednesday,
hoping to post all the April Events Badges!

Stay At Home. Wash Hands. Stay Healthy.

  5. Happy Sunday! I'm absolutely jealous that you got to see these woodpeckers and take pics too! Awesome capture. I keep hearing woodpeckers on my walks in the neighbourhood, but haven't actually laid eyes on them. I have very, very few pics of any, of any variety, and it's always a BIG DEAL to me when I do get a pic! So good for you!

    Be well, Ann, and stay safe.

  8. That is a treat. Sweetie does not find it to be a treat to see the one that rattles the pipe from the wood burning stove, waking him when he wants to sleep late.

  10. I think the quieter it is the more likely that more pretty birds will show up.

  14. Those are two handsome birds. I think I may have said in a previous comment with a woodpecker that they are very similar to ours. From this angle I can see they are not as similar as I had thought.

  15. I have seen 2 and 4 together a couple of times but never on the ground, always on a tree.
