This morning as my husband sat outside, our resident woodpecker decided to show his little face for the first time this year...well the first we have seen of him anyway. I blogged about his 'mate' (or what I call his mate!) in this post last year. I don't know how long woodpeckers can live, but I swear this is the same bird that we have seen each year and in the same spot since we moved into our house in July 2004! He is a pretty little thing and very tolerant of my acrobatics out the window as I try to get a good shot of him! He stayed for half an hour before flying off.

Thanks for your kind comment. I love seeing American woodpeckers, they are quite different from the ones in my Mum's garden!
