woodpecker in our yard before. Happy Labor day, birders! Cindy

spring & summer to get a woodpecker in my yard. She is a beauty.
Yesterday morning I noticed a strange visitor at the feeder. I sprang
to the window to take a peek and it was an Oriole. I ran to get the
camera, but it was gone by the time I got back. I decided to put out
some grape jelly, just in case it was still hanging around but no
luck. It was a beauty...very bright orange with black markings. I
don't know enough to tell what type of Oriole. I wish I hadn't missed
that one. Happy Labor Day to all! Cindy...what are you and Rox using
the pictures for?
- The best pictures are those in our head. As I get older and miss more photos, I have come to really believe that saying. I heard a little tap tap tap yesterday and saw that woodpecker and ran, no tiptoed, for the camera. She was so busy about her business, she allowed me to take a couple of shots. I was so inspired, I put out some apple suet on one side of the tree and some woodpecker blend on the other side. We'll see if she comes back. You are lucky with that orrie. I don't believe I've ever seen one in the wild. I think we'll be seeing a lot during the fall migration. What do you mean about the photos? CindyOn Sep 4, 2006, at 11:04 AM, m8d12 wrote:
