Anyone want to borrow him?

He stops by for lunch. Beautiful bird. Northern Mockingbird, right?

That is one pissed off looking bird  oh oh

Some years ago a pair nested in the star magnolia I planted in front of the house.  While they had young, the male kept attacking us when we came out the front door.


John

Problem is, he was gathering nesting material. Racket will increase.

Have you ever photographed a Piliated Woodpecker? I've seen them twice on my street but even with my telephoto lens I never get a clear shot. I'm intrigued with them.


John

I have seen Piliateds but never been fast enough to take a photo. I heard them more often than I've seen them.


Tom

Pileated seem pretty skittish. As soon as one sees me, he hides or flies away.
