A little birdie....

reminded me that I've been neglecting my blog. Wow, this has been an INCREDIBLY busy May!

This little guy is a Tufted Woodpecker. (It helps to have an wildlife biologist in the family - my BIL - who knows this stuff!) We've had your standard "Woody the Woodpecker" type woodpecker since last year. This guy just started showing up this spring. They certainly do make an odd couple. It's fun to see what birds our feeders attract. (The woodpeckers are fond of the suet feeder.)
