Birds

I took a photo of these birds in my backyard this week. Sorry for the quality I wasn't going to post them but I figured bad photos are better than no photos.


This guy is the reason I trotted out through the snow to take a photo. He is a Pileated Woodpecker, they are big, about the size of a crow. I don't see many of these in this area.


This is a Robin. It is said that they are the first sign of Spring; well this dispells that myth. It was 15 degrees when I took this photo; yesterday it was 7 below zero.

My son saw a pileated woodpecker several months ago (SE Connecticut) He, being all of five years old, watched it in awe for a while and solemnly told me that it eats squirrels.
