Earlier while visiting a Friday’s Hunt post at Birding for Pleasure, I visited one of their other posts titled Saturday Critters- Amsterdam. Their post led me to Viewing Nature with Eileen, who hosts the weekly event known as Saturday’s Critters. Of course, I had to play along!
Here is my contribution for today. I was blessed with another visit by the Pileated Woodpecker. Not only was I lucky enough to get a few pictures of this beautiful bird, but I caught it with its tongue out. 🙂
He (or she!) saw me watching and shortly went around to the backside of the tree. I walked a little closer, and then something loud went up the road. The woodpecker flew away after that. After the Pileated Woodpecker left, I was blessed with another black and white visitor – a very bashful Downy Woodpecker.
No matter where I stood, it kept its head behind a leaf, then it flew away.
I don’t often see either of these woodpeckers in my backyard, so I am very happy when I do!
Have a blessed day, y’all!
