We've been loving watching the birds in our new house (haven't moved in permanently yet).
Yesterday this gorgeous woodpecker flew in. We have, so far, three species of woodpeckers coming into the feeder. This is by far the biggest. I've done a little research, and I think it's a pileated woodpecker. I first thought this might be the inspiration for Woody Woodpecker, but it turns out that was an acorn woodpecker (lives in California, of course!)
In contrast, here's the smallest woodpecker we've seen. They're all beautiful!! This one is after the suet just like the big guy is.
