Early this morning I saw all the birds fly away from the feeders. Then seconds later I saw this enormous woodpecker start checking out the feeders. I looked at our guide for common birds and the hairy woodpecker was not pictured but the description seems to fit. I looked it up online. That wasn't it. This bird was slightly smaller than a crow at least 13 inches. The red on the top of its head look almost like a mohawk and look at that beak! I found it online: Pileated Woodpecker full grown they are 16 to 19 inches.
|Hello Big Guy! Pileated Woodpecker|
On the way back from my therapy appointment, Tabatha and I both said "look at that ahead!" At that point there was only a tiny speck of a rainbow. We pulled off to the side of the road and it disappeared. She pulled back onto the road and drove a little further and then pulled off to the side of the road one more time when a double rainbow appeared. It was there for a moment and then flash it was past! Oh yeah, we got wet! It was a combination of rain and sleet.
