And then came the confusing part. Suddenly there were three! Really!! While they were all close to each other, I could not get them on the same photo. We couldn't figure out why three of them would be hanging out together. Maybe it was a chick from last year? ~~ Ok, I just read about them some more and learned that the chicks have the same coloring as the adults right from the start. So, maybe they had one of the young with them. Although it did look pretty big... not sure.
Do you any of you know why most of the woodpeckers here have similar coloring? Black, white, maybe some grey, but always bright red somewhere on their body? They aren't exactly camouflaged very well.
My blogging is going to be even more sporadic than normal - we are having a house guest with us until tomorrow and more arriving on Friday for the weekend. That means lots of fun outside and playing tourist, and less computer time! Hopefully, I'll take lots of beautiful photos to share with you!!
I hope you are all doing well and wish you a gorgeous Tuesday!!
