I finally caught this bird on camera. I have been trying for a while. A few days ago I tried to sneak up from the side of the house and all I was able to snap was a blur of feathers. Today I blatantly opened the back door and it did not move. Wow! I am thinking it is a woodpecker, but I don’t know my birds all that well, and am sort of wondering why it would be hoping around in the backyard. I hear one or a few in the old dying trees behind the dike in our area, but am not sure if this is one of them. A few years ago when we had a dying elm in the yard, there was one here constantly. After we took the tree down we found it was filled with ants that appeared to be carpenter ants. My brother found a colony of them in my mother’s house when he did some work there. He took to them pretty harshly and hopefully they were eradicated in the area. I particularly like this second picture of the little bird as its face looks so very curious. Perhaps it is time to get Paulina a better lens with a more powerful zoom. Hope you enjoyed your day, whatever you were doing.
