    1. Thank you, Dee! This woodpecker is gorgeous and quite a large bird, although here he does not look like it. He really is clinging closely to our tree …. it was freezing that day! I’m so thrilled you were able to stop by to see this image. May you have a blessed day! Much love to you! xo

    1. You’ve got an idea there, Dan. We should pick and choose which dead branches go and which ones stay. If I can attract more woodpeckers they will keep the insect population down, not only in the trees, but the grass and my gardens. Have a great day!!

    1. I thought the very same, Frank. Flickers are a large bird, about as big as a bluejay. So when I saw this guy all scrunched up, I knew he was cold. I’m smiling …. you keep smiling too! Have a great day! xo

  1. Wow! A chubby little guy….Is he as small as he looks in the picture? He looks like the size of a small song bird? If he is small I’ve never seen one…I always see the big guys and their bright red heads. Good catch AR….Great shot of him/her….Stay warm over there. Frigid here as well. Happy days ahead…Hugs and love…VK ❤

    1. No, VK, he is not as small as he looks. Hubby in fact pointed him out to me …. I just about missed him. He is about as big as a bluejay, but here he looks a lot smaller due to being all hunched up for warmth. He’s not as big as a Pileated Woodpecker and he is bigger then a Downy Woodpecker. I’m thrilled you stopped by to see this amazing bird.
      Warmed up today up to the 40’s. Previously it was bitter cold! Happy days ahead ….tomorrow is Winter and from here on out the days of light get longer. YAY!! Much love and hugs to you! xo

    1. There is a difference on our property, Mark, and that is no lie. Since I’ve been “weaving my magic” with the horse next door, I can feel the same energy on that property as I can here. Now on the other side of us, no. When we built our home in the 80’s, I envisioned a bird sanctuary here even though the wild portion of our property was just about bare. Today it is lush, filled with bushes and trees, the perfect environment for birds and such. How did this happen? All by itself. My Intention was “heard” and Mother took care of the rest. True story. (smile) xo

  2. That’s a really beautiful bird! If you keep watching your feeders you should get some other unusual visitors when the weather conditions are severe. Feeders save so many bird-lives in winter.

    1. Our feeders are situated so not only I can view them easily, but also our cats. I know how important it is to keep those feeders full for I have seen the flocks of birds desperately eating especially when the weather turns bad. It makes me feel so good knowing I am assisting birds to make it through the Winter months.


  3. Pretty little sweetie. We had quiet holidays which was nice after our move. Yes, we returned to Florida and it is like coming home. I have also moved my blog but left a link on the old one if you want to ever stop by. I hope your season has been beautiful, Amy. Hugs. 💕
