Red-bellied Woodpecker, Melanerpes carolinus



Meanwhile, the flimsy, reassembled half-a-suet-feeder has bitten the dust. Time for a new model.





UPDATE: For the Porpoises of Comparison

I have a good feeling about the trees piccy.

Yoinked for scribblefodder, with your permission, kind weather-sir.

Oh, for sure.

I might put up some more...I took a bunch when I walked out one morning with both the G12 and the A710 for the porpoises of comparison.

The Porpoises Of Comparison was an awesome Ursula K. Leguin story.

Phony bird-feeder mania has bitten the dust?

Thunder, Merry Holidays. May your orbs be bright.

Post UPDATE.

I believe the Porpoises of Comparison once opened for the Mothers of Invention.

There is unrest in the forest,
there is trouble with the trees.
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas.


Gosh I love it when I can work a Rush song into a comment! :)
It's almost like Christmas or something! :)

Great pictures and I still want your deck.

((Hugs))

ifthethunderdontgetya is apparently Yoink Central.

Or else thunder is really mispronouncing the word, and I refuse to seriously consider that.

You may find SOME COMMENTERS do not share our good taste, Laura.

Fuck em. It's I don't give a fuck Friday or whatever you call it.

Rush ROCKS
I will hear nothing to the contrary.

First thing I thought of as well!

I think you will find that "Please Don't Shoot the Trees" is a Patricia Highsmith story.

Suet? How do these viciously-beaked woodpeakers obtain their diet of kidney fat when you're not buying them off with bird-feeders? Concerned Antipodean is concerned.
