THE RED BELLIED

Lately all of my birds eat me out of house and home. But lately the Red Bellied Woodpecker has been visiting quite frequently. He is a very wiley character too. Very early in the morning you can hear him pecking extremely fast on the gutters or the drain pipes. And it is loud! This will continue for about 20 minutes or so, and my neighbors find it funny, because they know it's my pecker making the noise. Last week the brazen bird even pecked at the window, because, I'm bad, the sill was empty of seed!!!!!! There is also two young ones, so I may be inundated with peckers soon.

  2. I have those birds here, but never could see what they were from so far. Beautiful!!!! I had no idea they were so big. I can only imagine the pecking it makes.

  3. Is it appropriate to show us your pecker on the window sill?

  5. You've spoiled those little birds, Mistress. A pecker that's used to getting treats will get frustrated if you forget to please it. As you well know...

  6. There you are, on pecker patrol again. (When the space shuttle was on the launch pad, NASA employed a pecker patrol to keep the birds from damaging the foam on the external fuel tank, my cousin worked on the pecker patrol for a couple of years.)

    1. I definitely I think have all the requirements to be on pecker patrol. They do peck awfully hard.

  7. There are worse things than being inundated with peckers. You just need to make sure they don't damage your wood!! LOL

    Hugs, my mistress!

  9. Beautiful pictures!!!! Its hard to get close to them, let alone see them sometimes. They like to remain invisible. Your pecker sure is a pretty one.

  10. Lovely post! I have several here, and your right about the peckering. I hear them through out the day pecking on things like the gutters and the siding. How they go so fast is beyond me. He is beautiful though.

  12. Careful, Mistress. You know what can happen if you feed the birds - you can't get rid of them!
