The Header Picture was taken in October of 2016 and shows the CHIMNEYS area (all decorated for Autumn) of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. This was BEFORE the horrible WILDFIRES which began here in November and destroyed SO much.

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.
