Positively Wonderous

Our backyard friend (??) depending on who you ask, has figured out that there is a feeder in the front yard that still has food in it (as the one in the back is completely empty, which he is not happy about) and here he sits taking one seed at a time, literally sending our cat and dog into frenzies. He seems to know as well that they cannot get to him as long as they are watching from the door and window, always on alert for the door to open.

The poor thing almost had a heart attach I am sure, as Goliath almost caught him the other day on his trip from the back to the front yard. Once he reached the ledge and safety he sat for quite awhile letting his little hammering heart settle down!

This year has been a wonder so far with critters; squirrels and ducks and now this wonderful addition that we caught site of on a pole out front.

We had heard them in the back quite often hammering away, this is the first time we have seen one out in front by the street. Quite a site with that red cap.
