Going to the garage to put in the laundry, I heard the peck-peck-peck of a busy little woodpecker somewhere in the yard. Immediately understanding that hunting up a woodpecker would be way more fun that dealing with dirty clothes, I dropped the laundry bag, grabbed my camera and took off to look for the tree hosting the little guy. Camouflage really works. It took me a while, but I found him at the top of the tree. Hi l'il guy!

Very nice! We love bird-watching, but we started out in our "new" neighborhood (a corn field 10 years ago) with killdeer and goldfinch. For the past two years we've had a downy woodpecker visiting occasionally. (we put out lots of bird seed and suet, etc). We planted lots of trees and bushes, but those take years to grow, so we are slowly getting neat birds and I take lots of photos.

Winter time we get a hawk feeding on the birds we feed. He's awesome to watch, though.

Birds are some of the most amazing parts of God's wonderful creation!
