I stitched these hotpads decades ago as a Christmas present for my paternal grandmother. They returned to my possession after my grandmother passed. I like to display them for the holidays as they remind me of her.
What's up with the birds you ask?
My male Acorn Woodpecker has been out and about.
As have a couple of Flickers including this male.
But the best woodpecker sighting of late, is a Red-breasted Sapsucker.
He's been working in the trees close by for the past week or so.
I finally had the opportunity to get a good photo or two.
I do love that bright red head.
And it's pretty clear why he's named 'Red-breasted'.
I hope he becomes a winter semi-regular!
