Nuttall's Woodpecker


Nuttall's Woodpecker


I was informed this is not a Acorn Woodpecker from a ornithologist.
Apparently these Nuttall's are nearly unique to California.
Some get into Baja too.


I get Acorn Woodpeckers and the Downy Woodpeckers too.
I guess I better be looking at the bird book more close.
Or contact my ornithologist for advice.

The truth of the matter is I get photos from my deck.
Been so busy.
I look at blogs, check my people, see great stories and wonderful reads.
Thank you all for being so entertaining.
Will be visiting my blogger friends, you know who you are...

Your beautiful cat in your sidebar has his eye on your woodpecker.

Sinbad on the Loose, I have heard you say that before. Believe me I think the cat on the side has his eye on everything and anything.

Great shot of the beautiful bird.
I see woodpeckers when we're in the mountains, but I've never been able to photograph them.
Like the others here I hope it is a good type of being busy you're talking about.
Take care.

Woodpecker is a beautiful bird .. I think you have the picture of a great spotted woodpecker, but is not sure.

(Dendrocopos major)

Janie, Thanks for the nice comment on my blog. I "unfollowed" you and then "followed" you again, so perhaps a picture will show up this time. I love your woodpecker--such a great shot. Your orchids are so beautiful too--always a treat to see your lovely posts. Have a great weekend. Mickie :)

I love the red color on this bird's head--nice capture, Janie! To answer you question, the orchid image is from my kitchen, the crocus is from Oak Leaf Drive,and the Iceland Poppy is from Harmony Nursery in Graton. I hope you are doing well! :-)
