He's Baaaaack!

As we were getting dinner ready last night, Ted looked out the window by the kitchen sink and saw the pileated woodpecker. I don't think we've ever seen him this close to the house!

There was a dead branch farther up this tree, and he was pounding away on it. I was glad the dog wasn't in the yard because pieces of bark were flying everywhere.

Ted also told me the other morning he saw two of them in the woods. My beauty sleep was more important at the time!

Happy April ~

Hi! Thanks for joining my giveaway! I am so glad you found I could find you! Wow what a big neat that you were able to take a photo of him. I love it in the spring when all the birdies are singing:).
Thnaks again!

He is cute Laura love seeing woodpeckers busy at work. We don't see them here much in the city in Virginia but did regularly when we lived in Maryland in the woods.

I have never seen a woodpecker, other than Woody.

Looks like you weren't the only one having dinner. I assume he was looking for some yummy treats underneath that bark.

Don't you love watching the Pileated? They are such amazing birds! It's still a thrill everytime I see one.
