Mostly Silent Sunday – Woodpecker Pictures from April 13 2019 (#SteemBloPoMo Day 14)

Yesterday morning, as hubby was making an awesome brunch for us (bacon, eggs fried in said bacon grease, and toasted Portuguese muffins on the side), I wandered back into our room and noticed one of our cats staring intently out the window. Now granted, he stares with just as much focus when a gentle breeze blows through the tree leaves, but I took a peek just in case. Sure enough, a Pileated Woodpecker was hard at work getting his own non-bacon (therefore less awesome) breakfast.

Even with my tripod, the shots aren’t the sharpest, thanks to this bird’s frenetic nature, and the window glass. However, I did manage to capture some relatively clear ones, and a short video (no audio, as the only thing you could hear was me snuffling with my seasonal allergies) as well.

Hope you enjoy and happy #SteemBloPoMo Day 14!


Hey there, Mr Woodpecker!

 
 
Such a striking bit of color on a dreary day

 
 
The 17 second video shows how busy he was…

 
 

…and this gives you a bit of perspective as to how close he was to our house

 
 
Contemplating life… or grubs… not sure

 
 
One of the million times he stopped for a fraction of a second

 
 
Looks like this isn’t his first visit

 
 
Just when I’d thought he’d flown away…

 
 
…turns out he was just playing peekaboo!

 
 
To make it even more interesting, he never popped out on the same side twice!

 
 
Catch you next time, Mr PWP! 😊


Thanks for stopping by!
