Garden Guest: Woodpecker

The north side of our front yard is a certified  National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat.  Really!  We have a certificate!  It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit.  I'm beginning a new series of posts to show you our Garden Guests. 
While I would love to take credit  for these photos, they were actually taken by our neighbors.  We live on one corner and they live on one of the other corners.  A couple of years ago, my garden was featured at a Master Gardener meeting.  Our neighbors, Travis and David, take remarkable photos so I asked if they would please stop by and see what they could do in my garden.

Can you see the toes in the next picture?  Wow!

Yes!  More of their photos will be posted later!  I'm not sure which ones were taken by Travis and which were taken by David, but they are all wonderful!  'Don't know what kind of camera they use, but if it comes up missing, I'm sure I will be the prime suspect!  ;-) 

Thank you to my sweet neighbors on the corner!

  1. Hey,

    Nice post...
    Would you like to follow each other on bloglovin and GFC!!!
    Have a gr8 week...
    Keep in touch,

  2. Beautiful shots of the woodpecker - thanks for sharing with us and have a lovely week :)


  3. The woodpecker is beautiful. And I love that song, and this is such a fun version.

  4. That is the coolest picture of the woodpecker. WOW!
    I like this song too. Thank you for linking up.

  5. Very cool woodpecker pic. We have a woodpecker but he is always too high in the tree to take decent pictures. Even high up, I can spot his red head.

  6. Who needs instruments, eh?! What a fabulous song from a whole bunch of talented guys!

    And the woodpecker pics are amazing. We've only the robins in August to get excited about here!

  7. Beautiful! Birds are my favorite animals. :)

  8. This summer we have had two different woodpeckers visit us-we love them. Every morning the smaller woodpecker would make his way to the telephone poll and go to town pecking it - I believe he was marking is territory since he certainly wasn't going to find much food in there - funny little thing and so enjoyable!

    So glad you linked up with us at the BeBetsy BRAG ABOUT IT Link and Hop.
