In the meantime, Randy and Sandy in California decided to share their candid photos with us. Thank you! By the way, do you recognize the birdbath?
As luck would have it, the timing and our neighbor’s generosity enticed “The Soaker” to the birdbath last evening with some very dry bread—determined enough not to take much notice of my attempts to take a few photos.
The woodpeckers are the Acorn variety, and we even have a Pileated Woodpecker nearby that only twice has come into the garden, once to perch on the deck railing but only for a few seconds. We often hear the distinct voice that reminds us of those old Woody the Woodpecker cartoons.
So, that’s it. We’re staying under the radar here as best we can and hope that the blog posting doesn’t bring too much attention! We have a baseball cap and new sunglasses handy just in case.
