Monday Mercurial #22: wondering

I took these photos on 2/20/15. Nicknamed Beauty, this gorgeous Red-bellied Woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus) was a regular for one winter. I often think of her, and wished she would come back. While a regular here, she had a habit of chasing and harassing hawks who came looking for a meal. I hope she’s alright, and wherever she may be, that she’s happy.  Click for full size.

  1. Thanks! Beauty wasn’t far from me in those shots, maybe 10 feet or so, and I had the window open. That magnificent pose in the top shot was her registering “oh, it’s the nuisance” before getting back to business.
