Be sure to click on the photos to see them all larger... Above is my favorite woodpecker (besides our Pileated --which I have missed getting a picture of recently). This guy is the Red-headed Woodpecker. I usually see one or two of his 'babies' during the summer --but so far, I haven't seen one yet...

|House Finch and Mourning Dove --having a 'discussion'|
Here is a cute picture of a serious discussion going on between a Mourning Dove and a House Finch... The Dove had been sitting in the water for the longest time --and I think the Finch wanted a turn!!!!!

Also---I do have a few Hummingbirds around now FINALLY... There aren't too many --but hopefully, more will come soon... No pictures of them yet though...
One more thing: You have heard the "How Hot is It" jokes... Anyhow--I have a new one for you, and this one is true... It was so hot here recently that the suet in the feeders MELTED... I have never had that happen before --but then again, it has never been as hot here as it has been this summer. (They say that the non-melt kind doesn't work either---so I just have to take the suet down when the temperature is over 100 degrees.)
Hope you enjoyed seeing my Bird Kitchen today... Can you tell how much I enjoy my birds??????
Have a bird-lovin' Monday!!!! AND---thanks for all of your prayers, thoughts and good-wishes after our storm.. The golf course people came the next day and cleaned it all up. All that is left now are two big stumps (which I'm sure they will come back and get soon)... Sad though to lose those two trees! But--we were luckier than some. That same storm did alot of damage in other areas of Tennessee including the beautiful Smoky Mountains...
