You just can't beat, basis black and white!! Smart and sheik Miss Woodpecker. With those looks she won't be single long..heehee.
she needs to invite a friend over to the suet cafe for some alfresco dining! haha.
We had a pair of these, male and female, in our yard this morning climbing up and down a tree trunk. The black-wite-red combination made them striking to see.But sheik? Like Arab leader? Those are male ... Sorry for not getting the connection. Maybe chic?
yes, chic! thanks! I corrected that. I'd love to more come to my yard! Hopefully the word will spread and they will come!
You get the best bird photos!
Well, I took about 6 before that one...she kept moving! ha.
I live in a warm climate. Birds in the snow have always facinated me. So beautiful.
Tracey!!! Where have you been, girl!? :)

I wonder if you have a different variety up there!
Great shot...you sure get a lot of colorful birds to your feeders...Certainly worth the effort...Cheers!Linda :o)
What I really want are blue birds! I've never seen one in my yard!
I have had several woodpeckers at my feeders this week. This one is a beauty with her classic black and white.
I'd love to have one with the long red head and plume. I don't know if they are in Ohio, though.
Great photo! She is so pretty, I imagine she will have suitors soon.
Thanks, Linda...yes, I thought she really was lovely! Thanks for visiting, too!
Gorgeous bird....Best regards from Paris,Pierre
thanks, pierre! :)
Such a pretty little bird and a fantastic photo Betsy... Happy New Year!
took me a while to get a good photo of her...she's always on the move! ha.
Awwwwww love this pretty pretty bird!! Great photo as always Betsy! Take carex
The kitties think she's pretty, too! But she's too fast for them!
She is so pretty and reminds me of one of your drawings. Very cute. Hope all is well with the bird feeders and the squirrel is still staying away.God bless.
She would be a fun one to draw! I haven't drawn anything in so long! :(
Yes, she is very stylish in her black and white. Perhaps she won't be dining alone long. ;) blessings ~ tanna
I think she is, too! I'll let you all know if a mister comes along. :)
Birds are amazing. I really love watching them. And the colors are also incredible.Even sparrows are different.
Oh, me too...as you know! ha. Yes, there are so many different kinds of sparrow...each a little different!
