My morning wake up call...every morning
Today is Rednesday over at, It's A Very Cherry World, stop by and visit with all of our red lovers by clicking here...
Every morning for 2 weeks, I have been awaken about 5-5:30, there is a knock knock knock on the door, Hello, but there is no one there. Hello, I say again and am answered with a tap tap tap...Ahhh, it's my friendly neighborhood wood pecker pecking away.
I think the Red Headed Wood Pecker is one of the, if not the most beautiful birds around.
I have tried for months to get a good picture, I have gotten several that are so far away they are just blurry,
but Wednesday morning I was fortunate enough to be standing looking out the living room window when this beauty decided to take a break and just sit on a limb close enough to zoom in and get these great shots.
What do you think, isn't he lovely, his head looks like a perfect hood.
