We have a Barred Owl in our neighborhood that we often hear. Ferd and I have lived here in for four years and we finally spotted it tonight as we were taking a walk just a few houses down!
This Hummingbird must be hot. She sat at the feeder with her head back and her beak open for a while.
I need to clean the window too!
Ferd and I birded at Reynolda Gardens this morning. We had just started out when we heard a Pileated Woodpecker. We walked over to where we heard it. We saw some things falling from a tree and heard some pecking sounds and we saw the Pileated Woodpecker. It was pecking and peeling the bark off. I noticed some pieces of bark were falling off a little bit higher on the tree and saw the second Pileated Woodpecker.
We walked around Reynolda Gardens for a while and later went back to the Woodpeckers. They were still there and cleaned off most of the bark on the branch and made many holes.
