Friday Creature

Here are the birds I mentioned in yesterday's post. They're a couple of (very talkative) Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers, who are probably just here for the winter. More creatures are boarding over on the modulator's ark today. I'll start up the shore birds I brought back from my Thanksgiving in Florida next week. Have a great weekend!

Wow. To get two in the same shot is a major feat. Have a great weekend.

Thanks! You can tell I was excited to have them both in the same frame, because I cut off the tip of the female's tail. ;-) They move around so quickly and in such a jittery fashion, I almost missed the shot. A moment later, and the male had disappeared around the back of the tree.

Good shot, Alice! You sure have a lot of interesting birds to get pictures of!

Thanks! It is amazing how many different birds I see when I'm just hanging around the house. It makes me wonder what a variety I'd encounter if I put some effort into seeking them out!
