Eluding me no more

This is the red bellied woodpecker that has been eluding me. I was finally able to sneak up and get a few pictures before it flew off. It really has been enjoying the suet we put out. Good fuel on a very cold day.




New Bird Feeder

Glen and I bought a new bird feeder not too long ago. We can put both seed and suet in it, which is kind of handy. We haven’t had a lot of bird traffic yet. Yesterday our cat Lilly alerted me to a gorgeous little downy woodpecker. I got the camera, got it focused perfectly….


And it flew off the second before I took the picture. My next attempt was not much better. It’s like the birds are taunting me.


You can’t tell from the picture, but it was a female cardinal. She has a nice tail :-/

Suet, it does a body good

Here are some more pictures that Glen was able to get.  That same elusive red bellied woodpecker posed nicely for him.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
