Saturday's Critters and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Click on the photo to see it at its best.

Prentiss county, Mississippi, USA, January 7, 2022
My photo of the Pileated Woodpecker, Dryocopus pileatus, is not as clear as I would like, but it was the best I could get from my dining room window. They eat ants and other insects, and sometimes visit suet feeders. Look for them in old forests with large dead trees.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I am linking in today with Saturday's Critters and I'd Rather B Birdin'

"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they? Matthew 6:26

  1. Great view of the Pileated Woodie, it is nice to see them from your window.
    Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend.

  2. Nice pic of the pileated woodpecker. I would be thrilled to capture a pic of one out of my window.

  3. Not an easy bird to photograph. You did well.

  4. Oh, I love seeing these big woodpeckers. I saw one yesterday but didn't get a photo at all. You did great!

  5. Not caring about the blurryness - I have never seen one of these woodpeckers and it was a treat.

  6. That must have been exciting to see it out there!

  7. Love woodpeckers! Always nice to spot them ;)

  8. I had one of these visit a bird feeder about a year ago. I was shocked that it was so big and just to see it in general. Haven't seen it since :( This is a great pic.

  9. Lovely to look at, even if it is a bit unclear.

  10. Oh they are awesome birds, aren't they? I've only seen them a few times. Such regal birds. Such a thrill. :)

  11. They are marvelous creatures! Noisy though.

  12. I am always green with envy of you all when you share a sighting such as the pileated!! I have yet to see one in the wild.

    And thanks for stopping by to link in this week.


I enjoy your comments!
