A Little Bit of Everything

Stitching is going v e r y  slowly this week.

We had a beautiful full moon.

And it was followed by a very pretty sunrise.

I've had a reasonably good selection of woodpeckers this week.

I was pleased to have a female Hairy Woodpecker.

She came to the peanut feeder in the backyard.

The male Hairy worked away at the feeder in the front on the house. 

I noticed something new to me.
He has some yellow tail feathers, while the female does not.

Not the greatest of photos, but this was the best I could get of my Red-breasted Sapsucker.

The Sapsucker has the prettiest black and white back of all the woodpeckers.

The Acorn Woodpeckers have been hanging out close to the house. 

This is a female.

And they've been active at the peanut feeders too.

Getting peanuts is a serious business!

We've had some rain so the windows are blotchy again and so are my photos - sorry! 

Again, not a great photo, but proof of Flicker activity.

I love to see the wonderful turnout at your feeders. That peanut feeder seems to be a favorite of the woodpeckers.

Beth, as always, thanks for these wonderful woodpecker photos. Each time I see an acorn woodpecker I think of penguins! The full moon was gorgeous this week.
