A male Downy Woodpecker. He was chasing the bluebirds away from the suet.
A White-breasted Nuthatch also enjoying perching on the jacked up bird bath.

Thanks Billboard Bob! (: (day 300 of gray drizzle……kids are anxious to get outdoors and sled and snow shoe, poor restless things!)

Billboard Bob?? Cute. Cute, Melissa. :-)
We finally got sunshine yesterday and today, with highs in the 60s. But tomorrow’s high only 40. Go figure.
Are your kids tired of the Ormie video yet?? :-)
Happy Thursday! xo

BTW, I was serious about your photographs. I love those close-ups. You apparently must be doing well with your 300mm lens. I would love to have a shot like that of the Nuthatch.
You rock. :-)

Many thanks! Your peacocks remind me of our neighbor’s guinea fowl. (:

Very, very nice. Good shots of these small songbirds? That’s no easy feat. Very well done.
