Weeding sitting in the garden during the spring we were entertained by the loud hammering sound of a Flicker working on a tall tree at the end of our lane. We thought he was just making the noise to attract a partner. But nooooo, he/she was making a home.
sitting reading in the garden this afternoon and there was quite the racket coming from that same tree.. About twenty feet off the ground there was a lot of activity.. I grabbed my camera and caught Mama Flicker feeding her new babies in an amazing little home she built in the tree.. A perfect little hole.. She did a great job, twenty feet in the air, safe from predators.
The Fox Sparrows are doing well…. One foot off the ground and perilously close to many predators.
We had a nice visit with a CH in the garden this afternoon… I don’t think the garden can ever be a happier place for me than when it is
