Get Down with Downy

Some wear their heart on their sleeve...looks like this fellow wears his heart elsewhere? Woodpeckers are so joyful, aren't they? (Click on it for a closer look.)

    I just love the touch of red on his head, he really is quite divine.

  2. We have two variety of woodpeckers around the house and field - greater spotted (who is like your friend in colouring) and the green woodpecker, known in the olden days as yaffle (from his laughing call). Wonderful to hear and see, a privilege.

  3. This is a great shot. Yes indeed, the woodpeckers really are joyful and so much fun to watch as they chase each other around. I love their jerky little movements. I have one little lady who likes to come quite close and leans down as if to chat with me when I'm filling the feeders. I get such a kick out of her :)


Glad to hear from you once again. I really like these visits. Come sit on this log and tell me what you are thinking.
