Good morning, We are in a stretch of very warm days this week, today another 100 plus degree F. Early mornings begin in the 80's and humid.
We throw out a bit of seed on the deck and railing to enjoy the birds up close-but that has also brought in way too many squirrels. There are little to no predators here so they can really just take over. It's kinda funny but we have to guard the seed from them for a couple hours so the birds have a chance of getting any.
One of the birds we enjoy watching is the red headed woodpecker. Sometimes we see a pair together-only difference is their size and we think we have two pairs. This morning-a sweet surprise-a young one. We decided to sit outdoors for a bit with our coffees and I grabbed my camera. If sitting still the birds will come, and Not the squirrels.
This was special watching this young red headed woodpecker, very active.
