Here's my selection of possible November stitching projects - heavy on grateful and gratitude...and turkeys!
My birding has been heavy on woodpeckers.
No sign of a male Downy Woodpecker, but I do have a female.
She shows up at least twice a day.
The female Hairy Woodpecker is a regular too.
The male Hairy Woodpecker almost always 'announces' its presence with several loud 'peeps' as he flies in.
He continues to talk while he eats.
Here are both the female (left) and the male (right) on their favorite feeders.
The Red-breasted Sapsucker comes late in the afternoon when the light is low.
I messed with the ISO settings (light) and think the contrast is better.
Now I know what to do.
Here's my male Acorn Woodpecker.
And the female Acorn hanging out with a Starling.
Back to the male.
This young Flicker comes by most days.
I think this is a young male as it has the beginnings of a mustache.
