First Shots From The Brickhouse Bird Blind

Although I didn’t get to spend much time in my new backyard bird blind, I did get to spend a little and I enjoyed it.  I was just a little too close to the feeder, but I love the detail in the shots. First up is the Red Bellied Woodpecker.  I’m pretty sure there is […]

Red Bellied Woodpecker Enjoy A Morning Nut

When I wasn’t taking pictures or videos of the Purple Martins this morning, I would turn my attention to the bird feeder.  We have a pair (at least) of Red Bellied Woodpeckers who visit the feeder several times a day.  If they don’t have their favorite food in the feeder, they’ve taken it upon themselves […]

By all indications, this “should” be a Red Bellied Woodpecker, but this one has a white head.  Not sure what that indicates.  Is it just a young Red Bellied Woodpecker or does […]

Whatcha Lookin At Willis?

As if there aren’t enough critters in the backyard, these two guys came over to have dinner tonight.  It’s kinda funny, every day around 5:00pm, like clockwork, the doves (and an occasional woodpecker) start sitting on the fence looking for dinner from the bird feeders. Sorry, I kinda messed up on the crop of this […]
