There's been lots of excitement going on around here! Three mornings ago I finally got a visual on the large-sounding woodpecker I've been hearing in our backyard. It IS a Pileated and I can't wait to get photos of it, but so far no luck. I've been hearing him for about a month and this was the first time I've seen him - fingers crossed I'll be able to snap a shot of him soon.
Then two mornings ago, I went to let my dogs out and discovered this feathered friend sitting on the kitchen floor. My husband had left the sliding door open a bit when he went to work for the dogs and the bird came in. Brodi had a hold of him for a moment but he got free and flew up to the window above the sink and sat there for a few photos.
I opened the door all the way and he did go back out, thankfully! Yesterday morning, the SAME thing happened only it was a little finch who came in and she went right back out, lol.
We had this happen a few years ago with a hummingbird, lol. Seems birds really like us!
