The adventures of Fay and Bob as they move beyond the 9 to 5 life

Pileated Woodpecker and other birds

1 Comment

A couple days ago I saws a huge pileated woodpecker fly over.  They are 15-19 inches and have that distinctive red head.  You can’t miss them.  Several months ago I thought I saw one.   Hope he doesn’t like our house for a nest.   I remember one of our neighbors in Vadnais Heights had a wood house and one of these woodpeckers pecked and made a hole so large he had to have part of the house resided!   Now if only I would see those pretty little bluebirds and cardinals at our house, I know they are in the neighborhood. Our little window mounted bird feeder in the family room and the suet block hanging off the deck bring Carolina wrens, red headed woodpeckers and many tufted titmouse as well as many little wrens and finches.  It is so funny watching  my cat Tanya watch them!
