After having seen White Pelicans for the first time this winter, it's pretty cool to have a stitch that features one!
I'm also featuring woodpeckers.
I had a bit more action this past week, including to Hairy Woodpeckers, a male and female, haning out in this tree.
The female was kind enough to come to the feeders a couple of times.
I'm hopeful the male will follow suit.
The Flickers were more visible this week as well.
A young male I think.
Can you see the faintest of mustaches?
I did spy the Acorn Woodpeckers at work on their granary tree.
The male also finally showed up at the front feeder.
Bring the wife and kids please!
I heard the slow, loud 'thunk, thunk, thunk' of a Pileated Woodpecker at work.
And I found her! This was a good test for my new camera as the bird was quite distant and the light was poor - a mix of sun and shadow.
Here you can see her working away on a typical long rectangular hole.
If it is big and deep enough, it will be a home for someone next spring.
