No posting

I've been a bit busy. I did get to a park yesterday with my camera. They have recreated a little bit of prairie which is quite convincing except for the periodic trains and car traffic. I saw Red-winged blackbirds, an as yet unidentified woodpecker, a flicker as well as the usual urban geese, sea gulls, robins and so forth. The prairie wildflowers were spectacular too.

How observant to notice the woodpecker. Only when I went back up the screen did I realize the woodpecker peeking out.

Lovely picture of the flower.

You cannot see the woodpecker unless you study the photograph. Isn't nature amazing?

Wonderful pictures.

I didn't know they LIVED in there! I thought they just ate from it and then went home to a normal robin-type nest. I'm still way too urban.
