A New Visitor to the Garden
The other day I looked out the library window and saw a most unusual sight.
I saw a large woodpecker unlike any I had seen before.
We often have a yellow-bellied sapsucker visit us during the winter, and sometimes a hairy woodpecker will come a knockin' at the door, so to speak.
But this is the first time that I have ever seen a pileated woodpecker.
It came to feast on the berries of the dogwood tree.
It was difficult to get a good picture of this beautiful bird through the screened window.
This is a large bird.
The pileated woodpecker came back this morning for more berries.
I think we have a repeat visitor.
I'm a happy amateur birdwatcher.
