One more Pileated Woodpecker Pic!

This picture has more of a side view. I think these birds are so cool looking. To me they seem like a strong bird in many ways. Their hard to get pictures of. Any movement, even quite a distance away, their gone. I'm glad I got the few I did. Now, hopefully this summer I can get a few more when everything is in full bloom. Not going to hold my!

Getting outside finally!!

Tree trimming

After such a long winter it felt good getting outside, if only for a day. We had 2 dead trees in the backyard that took quite a beating over our more harsher winter this year. I'd been keeping them around for our woodpeckers. They love them kind.....dead. :-) Well, it was time for them to come down. They were getting really messy and a lot of picking up after, and  I do have more dead trees in our ravine, so the woodpeckers will still be okay. Less work for me!

Backyard looks quite bare now. Better get new trees planted.

Pileated Woodpecker on my Suet Feeder

I could not believe what I was seeing when I looked out the window and seen this HUGE woodpecker pecking away on my small suet feeder. He hung on there for about 2 mins. Longer then I would of thought. Got some great pictures.

Northern Flicker on My BirdBath

Northern Flicker

What a nice thing to wake up to in the morning. A Northern Flicker sitting on my birdbath. Had to take the picture through my window. Window screens in the way, but you can still get a pretty good view somewhat. It was so big and full looking and that long beak. Looked hugh sitting there. It sat for a couple minutes drinking.
They are very unique looking bird. Wish I seen them more. Not really sure yet how many I have in the backyard. I don't always see them as often as the other birds. Sometimes not for quite awhile.
