I've got a few shots of wildlife on a snag out in our backyard. The Anhinga was in a snag on the reservoir behind our house. The snag out back sees many visitors. Osprey use it for a eating table as do the eagles on occasion. At night owls like to sit atop the snag and hoot. We've even seen wood ducks way up in the snag. The eagles stop in several times a week and view their domain from the tree and numerous songbirds and squirrels climb around on it almost every day. I love our snag and will be oh so sad the day that it falls. Storms have already ravaged the tree. The limb the Ibis and Great Blue was on is long gone but luckily life still abounds on our backyard snag.

Nice action shot of the woodpecker, MaggyNoLia! Looks like you snag has lots of traffic.

Excellent shots, one and all. I do especially like the flying woodchips in the woodpecker pic.

Thank you for sharing.
