|This is the largest of all the woodpeckers (unless you can find an Ivory-billed), A pileated woodpecker|
|They make distinctive holes that are more rectangle in shape as they excavate trees in search of insects.|
|I always delight at the return of our Red-headed Woodpecker. The red is so distinctive next to his black back.|
|The juveniles have a grey head for a while until they mature|
Our best spring surprise is the return of the Red Fox which have had a den under our neighbor's horse barn for the last 3 years. In the mornings they all come out to play in the sunshine. I have my spotting scope set up in the living room so Mr. B and I can enjoy all the antics of the 5 young fox kits. The mom and dad certainly have their hands (paws) full trying to keep them fed.
|headed to the woods for a food run!|
|Last nights catch, looks like a mallard duck|
Have a wonderful day!! We are headed to Cincinnati this afternoon and Mr. B and Matt are going to see the Cubs and Reds play tonight at the Great American Ballpark.
