Mid-week science snippet
While I was working in the yard on Saturday I noticed two woodpeckers in the yard. I knew they were woodpeckers, but I wasn’t sure what kind they were, so I turned to the internet.
They were red-bellied woodpeckers.
Very cool birds. I have seen a Pileated Woodpecker in the yard–and they are awesome–but they are much more rare around here.
While I was looking around on the internet I found this. Watch the whole thing.
That mini-bear didn’t seem overly concerned with that large bird with the long beak, did he?
While we’re on the subject:
This happens to me regularly and I always blame chipmunks! Maybe that is why chipmunks are so over pileated woodpeckers. They are sick of getting the blame.
Well, I find these things interesting, don’t you?
P.S. Speaking of birds, I must report that our beloved Cardinals went down in flames yesterday in Chicago. The post season is over. Boo.
