Default Red, Yellow, and Blue

Here are some birds that were in my backyard last week: Red-bellied Woodpecker, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, and Bluebird. The first one is often seen on the utility pole next to my house. I had never taken a picture of it before. There seem to be lots of holes in my utility pole. Do you think that it finds much to eat there? I always thought that the same type of woodpecker would move from the pole to the tree, but these photos show that they are different. I took these two photos about half an hour apart. The bluebird picture is not very clear. I couldn't figure out the setting while I took several of those. I hope to do much better the next time they come around. There were several bluebirds and several cardinals in the tree at the same time. It would be great to get a picture with both in the same shot. That is my goal - and maybe an egret in the background so that it can be a truly patriotic photo!!!

Okay - I obviously put those out of order. I'm sure you can figure out the mistake.

Does the edit area still show up on the bottom right of your post yet?
If so.... click onto it and you can re write or rearrange them.
Go back into the one above this and click that edit and you can remove that post entirely if you want to.
You can only edit stuff for a short time though and then the edit area disappears.

So much better to see along the road than piles of newly plowed snow, turning black from road dirt, then slush! We are loving it here!

Default Hawk

I just snapped a photo of a hawk, but I'm not sure what kind.

...six hours later...it has been identified as a Turkey Vulture.

This might be considered O.T., but water dripping onto a wire inside a cave entrance formed a very bird-like ice formation...

It looks like a Turkey Vulture. Here are two versions of one I got yesterday, one as seen from the ground and the second lightened to see the detail.

I was thinking that it might have been a Turkey Vulture after I posted it. I have been seeing a lot of those around here. Thanks for clearing that up for me!
