My Backyard 1/17/12

This morning I was putting out some Perfect Patio seed blend on my deck railing and under our picnic table for the little Juncos after our snow last night andto my delight on my suet cage was a beautiful Hairy Woodpecker! He continued to eat his breakfast as I went along my morning business of filling the feeders, putting out fresh water and feeding the squirrels. I watched him from the kitchen window as the Juncos, Goldfinches, and House Finches flew in to eat the seed I had put out for them. After he was done, he flew up into the tree and wiped his bill clean of the insect suet he had enjoyed. He hopped higher up up the tree and out of sight so I didn't
get to see him fly away, but it certainly was a nice start to my day.
