When I'm upset, I don't stitch. I fret and I read.
I do hope to have this done before Thanksgiving.
On to woodpeckers. I haven't seen my female Downy Woodpecker for several days now. I hope that it is weather that is keeping her away and not hawks.
The Hairy Woodpeckers still come by.
Both the female...
...and the male.
The male always comes to this feeder and eats hulled sunflower seeds.
The female prefers this cylinder of mixed nuts.
Here are my two Acorn Woodpeckers.
Female on the left, male on the right.
I don't see the female all that often, so this foggy photo is the best I have to share.
The male, on the other hand, likes my peanut feeders and mixed nut feeders. So lots more opportunities to photograph him.
I saw four Flickers the other day.
Here are two - a male (highest) and female (lower).
Look at the male's bright red mustache.
And here's a young male.
