Pure Entertainment

This is what I do on a cold, snowy day!!!!!   I watch my birds!!!!   All of these pictures are of two male PILEATED WOODPECKERS chasing each other around a tree...  They would go round and round ---and I tried to get their pictures when they'd come back to 'my' side.... Pictures don't really show it the way it was ---but you will get the idea.  I apologize that there's one of our deck rails in the way.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my little entertainers....   I stood there with my camera for the longest time --watching these guys play!!!!  I guess they were staying very active since the temperature outside was about 20 degrees F---and there was about 5 inches of snow on the ground..  All of these pictures were taken on Thursday,  January 13.
