This Common Grackle with its lovely irredesicent colors paid a visit a couple of weeks ago. In the summer my feeders can get overrun with them but I see them only occasionally in the winter. It was spitting very fine snow when I took this so that's why he looks like he has dandruff. :)
Our grandchildren all visited for Thanksgiving and doing the festivities this Pileated Woodpecker showed up. All the kids (ages 4, 5, and almost 7) were fascinated by him.
This guy landed in a walnut tree outside my window this week. By the time I retrieved my camera he was taking off. Can anyone help identify him for me?
