Woodpecker, Finch and First Snow (Day 308/365)
Snow is falling on Crestline, our first of the year. Through the glass wall of our study, I see clearly two bird socks–one is filled with finch food, the other with mixed bird food, which the finches don’t care to eat. During the heaviest part of the snow this afternoon, those tiny colorful birds flocked to their favorite sock. Carefully, I pulled open the door, so as not to disturb them. This brave fella stared right at me as I lifted my camera.
A bit later, I was startled to see a large bird on the other feeder; through the glass I captured his image. I believe he is a woodpecker. I’ve never seen one on these sock feeders before.
