This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.

Downy Woodpecker...........

We had a new visitor today, well not exactly new. We have had the Downey's before. Still this little female was a welcome sight. I wish my birds would not be so jumpy. They have nothing to fear from me.

We know she is a she because she does not have the red dot on the back of her head.

I think she is very pretty, and fluffy and cute

She loves the fat I put out. I bought suet in the meat section at the grocery store. The birds have loved it.

This bird is very flighty and if it sees any movement at the window its gone, so I was lucky to get these pictures today. Maybe she was more hungry than usual,

I did get a few pictures of other birds today but will just leave you with the little Downey who seems to be hanging out with the Chicadees today.

I find woodpeckers remind me of little kookaburras.
