The High Protein Diet

This Pileated Woodpecker sure was determined to get those bugs. Maybe he got some fiber too, from that tree.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day.

P.S.  Remember to click twice to see the video if it doesn't come up on the first click.  Others have done that and I don't know how this one will react for you. Thanks!

    1. I tried sending you a link to see my video of him last year in the stump in front of my house. He can't get in it this year because the neighbor put a potted plant in it for decoration. It is actually her tree stump on our border.
      Maybe if you go to YouTube and type in "Woodpecker Surprise" by Carol Blackburn, maybe it will come up. I'm not sure. If you do get it, stray until the very end. LOL

  2. Dear Carol - these birds are amazing. They visit in our woods too. Unfortunately very difficult for me to capture on film. You did a super job. Hats off to that protein diet!! Hugs!

    1. Hi Debbie, this is the guy (I guess) who was in the tree stump in front of my house last year that scared the dickens out of me when he flew out as I was filming him. LOL It's amazing how the good Lord provides me with so much entertainment. LOL

  3. I enjoyed the video, and it worked brilliantly on two clicks!

    All the best Jan

    1. Glad you got to see it. This fellow (I assume it's the same one that always comes here) gives me loads of entertainment. I have a video of him on YouTube called "Woodpecker Surprise" from last year, I think. He was in a stump in front of my house and scared the dickens out of me when he flew out as I was trying to film him.
      LOL Thanks for visiting.


So nice of you to visit my blog. I look forward to reading your comments.
