No pecker yet….

Still waiting for a great pileated woodpecker shot or an interesting wood pecker moment. My friend Helen has a few great pictures I’m thinking about using if I dont’ have luck soon.

These aren’t great pictures, but it’s still fun to capture a little of the busy bird season. The male and female grosbeak showed up this week. I wonder what sort of nests they make and where they spend their winters. (someplace with a nut or two I’m guessing based on their strong beaks) The female’s feather pattern is one of my favorites, despite most field guides describing it as bland.

I spotted a female robin making her second nest of the season. Her first nest was robbed and then abandoned. I hope to get some pictures in the sunlight over the weekend.

Will the bluebirds ever hatch?? Their second nest is now complete.
