Today is my Monday post about what is happening around my home.
This charming Gila Woodpecker is having a snack before the tree
surgeons arrive today.
One of my favorite birds, I think they are a spectacular stylish from
the warm gray body, horizontal black and white barring on the back,
wings and tail. They also have a beautiful red "cap" and the top of
the head, quite jaunty like a beret or a tam maybe ?
I really like the graphic bars of black and white that cover all the
back and down the tail and the bright red dot on his head is perfect.
Sadly the lady bird does not have the red cap. Bummer !
