We have a Pileated woodpecker that hangs around our area. We saw him tonight going to town up in a tree.
I've seen him and/or his brethen around my house knocking away at the trees. :yay:

WickedWrench have a family reunion? :lmao:

I hear them all the time but rarely see them. :ohwell: I did take my dogs for a walk through the woods tonight and saw three deer, a possum, and a raccoon, plus an assortment of birds. :yay:

I counted 11 deer in one big group that went through my backyard last night. I can sit on the back deck real quiet and still and they act like I'm not even there. They always follow the same path. I guess they know hunting season is finally over. :lol:

How close were you and how did you manage to sneak up on him? The ones here bolt at the slightest human movement.
About 15-20 feet. It's a cropped photo of about a 200mm lens shot. Through the kitchen window, but when I tried with the window open they could hear the shutter and that was all for them. You got some good pictures. :yay:

Good morning everyone ! :coffee:

We love to watch the birds in our backyard ... we have lots of woodpeckers ... saw a pileated woodpecker a few days ago but he took off before I could get a pic... but the cardinals , esp this male one in the pic, love to pose for me :howdy: Now if we could just figure out how to keep the raccoons from stealing the suet right out of the baskets !

Ive had alot of little peckers this winter more then the past and a few big peckers (must be the viagra) :lmao:
The little woodpeckers love the suet cakes. Ive had alot more cardinals this year then past years and a few blue jays which I have never had many of in past years.
Sunday morning I was looking in the area of the bird feeder and saw my first bluebirds of the season one male, one female, so I went out and evicted the sparrows from the bluebird houses in hopes that they may settle in my yard this year instead of down the road. I use to always get bluebirds settling in the houses, but past 2 years they have passed me by.

Our bluebirds have been hanging out and looking at our houses recently. We usually have a nesting pair every year.

The Orioles also like Orages. I slice them and leave the skin on. Push them onto a nail, that has been hammered thru a board.
Does anyone here read Birds & blooms? I LOVE it!!

Check them out!

If it wasn't for the wifey keeping her eagle eyes peeled I'd never see these things going on.

BSGal is finally feeling better, huh? :lmao:

Great picture. :yay: I saw a woodpecker this morning as I was letting the animals out, but all I got was a glimpse as he didn't like the sight of three kitties and two doggies coming his way. :lol:

Still sore and can't chew on that side. Call in to the dentist.

However, I do look out my kitchen window a lot on weekends. There is always some wildlife or other out back. I was hoping a could lure the big pecker in with peanuts like I do the smaller ones, but he isn't interested.

Maybe desertrat just doesn't like peanuts. :shrug:
