Big Birds

Usually seen at our backyard suet feeders, a male Pileated Woodpecker (all of them fondly referred to as “Woodrow”) has been nibbling on our dying and insect ridden Weeping Willow that is located in our front yard. It is fairly close to the street and Woodrow doesn’t seem to be bothered by traffic noise.  Our Maine Coon cat, Frederick, alerted me to the fact that Woodrow was near.  Earlier yesterday, while waiting for the elusive Hummingbird to appear,  I was treated to a sighting of a Turkey Vulture gliding above in the front yard. Glad he was prowling and not carrying some prey.  Also happy to get some photos of the big guys for a change.
