Backyard Wildlife

Yesterday while eating my lunch on the back patio of the new house, I enjoyed watching the birds flitting through the trees and saw this handsome guy...






I love all the different woodpeckers we have here in Louisiana, but Mr. Red-Head is my favorite. I brought my camera with me today in hopes of catching a shot of him. I was not disappointed.



We also hung a squirrel feeder today. (Steve even brought out a level to make sure it was installed on the tree properly. I think that was a bit excessive.) It's called a Squirrel Snacker. I can't wait to get some shots of the silly squirrels getting into the thing.

What a striking bird, Ginger...just beautiful! I have not seen that particular woodpecker around here. I'll have to check and see if he ranges this far north.
