What did the woodpecker
say to the tree?
“Thank you for giving me
a wee bit of
your life force
cuz I’m free-
zing as I
hug you to me!”
Yes, it has been cold here. The day I took a picture of this Red-Bellied Woodpecker though our dining room window, he actually looked as though he was hunkered down, clinging to this branch as if for protection against the fierce winds. I have no idea why he would be in our backyard which has virtually no protection from the winds. Perhaps my love has attracted him over that of the forest? Or is it the easy pickings from the bird feeders?
This is the first year this woodpecker is in our yard. I’m keeping a close eye on him for he will lead us to those branches on our trees that need to be cut off. First though I will let him feast. (smile)
Don’t forget to breathe and take some time to rest in this very busy season.
