This morning when I went out to run an errand I heard a bird call that I don't remember hearing before.  I spotted this guy in the tree and then hopping onto the feeder.  I have seen plenty of these types of woodpeckers, but don't think I have heard his "chirp" before.  Time to keep the feeders really full with that nasty white stuff coming soon!




Julie has relocated to California.  She is a great designer and has the best patterns.  She is living near Eleanor Burns' shop, Quilt in a Day, and will be teaching there this winter!  Julie had a giveaway of this quilt kit for a BOM  that Eleanor is featuring.  I won!!  I don't know whether I will do the pattern or not, but the yardage that came with it is fantastic.  What a stash builder.  Thanks Julie....good luck in California!  Thanks Eleanor for some great fabric.

LOVE your woodpecker! They can be such acrobats! Glad you caught him in the act! I have one that regularly drinks nectar from my hummingbird feeders (I know!)--he is a Gila Woodpecker, which is very common here in AZ.
