I hope you enjoyed this blast from the past.

I counted five Acorn Woodpeckers in the trees a couple of days ago.

I think I have three guys and two gals.

He knows, but he's not saying.

I have oodles of Flickers. 

I had five in the backyard and two in the sideyard.
I like this photo as you can see the white rump feathers. These feathers are very noticable as the birds fly away.  My sister has been known to shout out "Flicker butt!".

These two were grooming and preening.

Love the snowman! Bent Creek designs are terrific! I haven't seen the red-bellied woodpecker all week, and the Downy only one morning... sad face. The finches and swallows are still visiting tho! Will post pics tomorrow... Hugs!
