On a recent rainy day the grackle seemed to be the one bird willing to fight the rain to grab a few seeds.
What have we here? Not a new bird species but just a drenched imposter grabbing all the seed he can get. This is the first time I've seen him at the feeder. Guess he's discovered a new dining place to get his meals.
This red-headed woodpecker is a lifer for me. I was visiting my Mom this week and walking around her yard with my camera when a bird flew over my head. I think I held my breath when I saw it. It landed quite a few feet away and I got two shots. This was the best one. Mom says they come near her feeders sometimes. Guess I need to plan a whole day at her house in a chair in the yard. :)
Linking to Wild Bird Wednesday.
