For the birds

One of the great things about where we live is all the wildlife we get to see. This year we have at least 2 pileated woodpeckers that are constantly calling, pecking, and flying close by our home.

We also have a pair of red tailed hawks that are nesting on the edge of our field. Fingers crossed we get to see some baby hawks flying soon! (and that I manage to capture a good photo of one of our hawks this year)

It's such a treat to hear the pileated woodpeckers laughing in the trees :) Great catch of one, Sara!!

Great photo!

Re; ticks. Once a young Nova Scotia naturalist, holding a tick on her palm expressed how cute she thought they were. Like an apple seed with little legs. I lost some of my terror then.. but none of the panic impulse when I found one on me.
Hope their season is short.
