Up close and personal with a...
This is a very special visitor for me.
Over the past few years I see this woodpecker one day,
each fall and never see him again until the following year.
I thought perhaps I had missed him this year but then I saw him on December 17th.
There he was on the suet feeder and he wasn't budging.
I watched and photographed him for several minutes.
I could not get a flight shot but I wanted to share this image,
showing off his bright yellow under-carriage.
In flight, the pop of yellow is hard to miss and absolutely stunning!!
I have not seen him again, till next year my friend.
I am super excited to be joining in with Eileen over at
for Saturday Critters.
