Give Us The Bird...Day Two...Woodpeckers

Hey Everyone!
Wow, here it is already, the second day of Give Us The Bird!  In case you missed it, check yesterday's post for songbirds and fancy-pants birds.


Okay, here's my Woodpecker post!

This is a youngster Red-Bellied Woodpecker.

And here's the Daddy adult.

Cute little Downy Woodpecker.  He's a regular at our feeders.

 Here's a Downy in the snow!

He loves our suet feeder.  Yummy for birdies.
This is a huge Pileated Woodpecker!
He's a giant.  They grow to 16-20 inches tall.
He worked for hours on this tree in my side yard.
Look at that hole he pounded out.

Then there was the amazing day that two of these big boys showed up and worked as a team to jackhammer all over this log! 
Blogsurf on backwards to my 4-6-11 post to see the video of these two in action!

There you two of Give Us The Bird!   I hope you enjoyed it and I'll be looking forward to seeing all of your posts.  Tune in tomorrow for my artsy, craftsy birdie post.

Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

I thought about taking pix of my marshmallow Peeps chicks and posting them for your event tomorrow. bol

I once saw a woodpecker pecking away at a tree in my mom's yard. Wish I had a camera, I'd have definitely taken a pic. He was really pretty.

PeeeeS mom: looked for her blue heron picture that she took last summer, but it got erased when her hard drive pooped out. So imagine a beautiful heron posted on our bloggie today. :-(

Wow, your blog's really going to the birds! He he he. I love it.

oh so cool! we've never seen a woodpecker before!! i like the ones that have the little bit of red on top of their heads. we live in the desert and have plenty of roadrunners and quail, but those are hard to capture on camera, we're more likely to catch a jack rabbit with our camera. it's still fun to pawticipate in this event, and we posted our second day pic. ;)
