Red Headed Woodpecker
This species is reportedly in a decline. I'm thrilled to have a pair nesting in my timber. I'll keep the suet feeders full!

Did you know that Blue Jays are meat eaters?
Image taken on a bitterly cold and snowy day. The Hairy Woodpecker is larger and more shy than the Downy Woodpecker. Shown here eating out of one of my homemade suet feeders.

This Pileated Woodpecker almost collided with me this morning, as I was putting suet out. Guess he didn't see me as he was swooping down to the tree. That was an experience! He flew away, but returned shortly.

This clip of raccoon youngsters in the bird bath is one of my favorites.
