Pileated Woodpecker, 16-19 inches tall
While I know this has nothing to do with decorating it does have something to do with spring around our home that has made me very excited…our colorful birds have returned! This gives me great hope that spring is here. After Saturdays snow today’s high of 72 degrees comes as both a shock and a welcome surprise although it’s going cold again tomorrow.
I looked over to our bird feeders and this guy is the first of his kind to arrive. I know it’s a guy because the females are a dull spotted, striped brown. In the bird world it’s always the males who are colorful.
Male and female Cardinals
There’s a whole lot of Amour going on around here!
After that amour they're going to need a few nests for the little ones.
Golden American Finch
The only female in that crowd is the dull looking one at the top in the row of three. Definitely not like the human world where females out number the males but the end result is still the same......;)
Just like a man to get the munchies afterwards but soon we'll have the babies visiting our feeders.
But the best part of the warmer days, a tired puppy after spending the day outside!
May you know such peace!
