Woodpecker, December 11, 2019

ABC Wednesday and Wild Bird Wednesday
W is for Woodpecker

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, December 5, 2019
The Downy Woodpecker, Dryobates pubescens, is just one of more than 200 Woodpecker species found worldwide. Woodpeckers search for insects hiding under the bark of trees, and are known for the drumming sound they make as their bills strike the tree trunks.

You can attract them to your yard by offering suet. I made this photo through my dining room window.

Have a wonderful day!

Your bird for today is...
Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, December 3, 2019
… a Great Blue Heron, Ardea herodias, in flight. I am amazed at how they can fold their long necks down close to their bodies so that their heads rest between their shoulders!

Have a blessed day!

The Weekend in Black and White, Saturday's Critters, and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Click on the photo to see it at its best.

Common Loon, Gavia immer, (nonbreeding plumage), Waterloo, Alabama, USA, December 1, 2019
Sunlight on the water was very distracting, so I converted it to Black and White, and I like it much better.

Have a wonderful day!

Willy Nilly Friday 5, Sky Watch Friday, Signs 2, Floral Friday Fotos,
and on Saturday, Saturday's Critters

Click on the photos to see them at their best.

1. Not a Lake (Sky Watch Friday)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, December 1, 2019
Though this looks like a lake it is a field near where I live after we had 4.7 inches (12cm) rain last Saturday. After loud thunderstorms with heavy rain Saturday afternoon and night, Sunday dawned bright and sunny!

2. Which Way? (Signs 2)
Lauderdale County, Alabama, USA, December 1, 2019
Just pick a direction - north, south, east, or west - and there are roads going there. I am glad I already knew which way to turn, or I would have been lost!

3. Favorite Photo of the Week (Saturday's Critters)
Turtle, Lauderdale County, Alabama, USA, December 1, 2019
Bright late afternoon sunlight gave everything a golden glow!

4. What I am Reading
Historical Fiction "A Friend of Mr. Lincoln" by Stephen Harrigan. It is about Abraham Lincoln's life in the 1830's and 1840's when he was an Illinois lawyer and legislator.

5. Amaryllis (Floral Friday Fotos)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, December 5, 2019
Amaryllis Bulb kits are popular here during the Winter to give a bit of indoor color. They usually include a pot, potting soil, and a large bulb - just add water and the bulb begins to grow! I bought two at five dollars each on November 19th, and this one is growing much faster that the other one. I hope to have blooms to show you soon!

Have a wonderful day!

Thankful Thursday and Little Things Thursday

Ballard Park, Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, November 28, 2019
I am thankful for the sunny days in between the cold rainy ones!
We have had a lot of rain, so we are especially thankful for days that we can walk in the park. This squirrel was foraging on the ground, and when he found something, he hopped up on the picnic table to eat it!

Have a blessed day!
