This morning I saw the female Pileated Woodpecker land on the snag by
the pedestal birdbath. I wondered whether she was coming for a drink
and, sure enough, she did. Managed to get two photos of her. I don't
remember ever having a Pileated there but I guess as Laura C. said
everyone is looking for open water. Love these surprises.
This afternoon drove to the end of my lane and saw the usual Bluebirds
and large flocks of Juncos on the grass and then flying up into the trees.
