Guess who came for lunch?

These were all taken within a space of about 10 minutes at lunch time today
This is a female downy woodpecker
I'm guessing this is her hubby
This is a red bellied woodpecker.....this guy is very shy & the most difficult to get pictures of....he always goes to the other side of the suet so I can't get a full shot of him.
There were several cardinals around
All this needs is some snow on the branches
Then the "guest of honor" showed up.....a pileated woodpecker
He hung about on the tree for a while
Then when he "dove" in for lunch went to the other side of the feeder.......I think they are the coolest of the woodpecker family!


  1. I had a pigeon in the garden. end of story.

    That woodpecker is beautiful

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
