This was about it for blue sky today.
Most of the sky was grey.
Don't you just love the "Bozo" red feathers!?
Too bad this one is not in good focus...
Yup, I think he sees me!
Look at the size of that hole!
Nice view of the three-toed foot
Note the tail position, leaning against the tree to help support the bird's perch on the trunk.
Impressive bill! Seeing this bird is such a thrill!
I took a couple of videos, the first to record the sounds that alerted me to its presence, and the second, showing it pecking the hole.
