Wordless Wednesday...



Use the talents you possess - for the woods would be a very silent place
if no birds sang except for the best.
~Henry Van Dyke


The call of the Northern Flicker ....

Enjoy!

  7. I love it when the norther flickers and the pileated woodpeckers visit our yard. Such interesting and beautiful birds.

  8. The Flickers love the suet blocks I put out, especially the ones with the berries in them. They also like the bark butter from Wild Birds unlimited. I have a perfect opportunity for photographing as the bird feeders are right out side the window beside my easy chair ...
