Assorted scamps

Here are some recent shots of the balcony visitors.  I must say the squirrels that visit (and a few birds) eat well.

This will be my last post on Visitors for awhile.  Personal things (nothing serious or health related) are taking up my time and keeping me busy.  If you are ever in the need for a squirrel fix, take a look at the archives.  As Arnie said, “I’ll be back”.

A few shots of the Red lad on the move.

Gila Woodpecker

Thanks to AZ in Arizona for the photo she took of the Gila Woodpecker.

AZ said, “Beautiful male Gila Woodpecker raiding the hummingbird feeder, I don’t begrudge them their sweets, but they tend to foul the water with whatever they’ve been eating prior to their visit to my feeder.  I like how they use their tails as a third leg”.

Pesky birds

We now have three woodpeckers that are stealing the nuts.  I don’t mind an occasional visit, but the three of them Pop (with the red on his head) his wife and their youngster have been taking the nuts at a faster pace than I’m willing to set them out.

Pop is getting bolder.  Here are some photos and a short video of him.  Normally he will fly off when I come to the door, but he basically told me to piss off.  He wasn’t leaving until he finished the walnut he was working on.

He had the munchies

The red lad was interested in eating.  He was also interested in what nuts there were in the room.
