  2. Andree IM'd me and said..."Hey! I've got this darn woodpecker raiding the feeder and tossing sunflower seeds EVERYWHERE!"

    That was how it began....

  3. I don't know if the free lunch makes the wodpeckers laugh but this sure brought a smile to my face.
    Thank you.

  6. I love the photograph, Andree. I have so many birds at The Swamp that I have yet to learn names for, but one of the woodpeckers is the Pileated Woodpecker. He's too fast for my lens to capture properly, but I'm still trying. Michael's poem reminds me of the Opportunistic black birds (whose name I do not know yet) who swoop down to catch the bread crumbs nearly as soon as they hit the ground!

  8. I wonder if woodpeckers tell their buddies about the place where they get a free lunch, or do they keep it to themselves? Great photo and poem.

  14. What a gorgeous photo. I laugh at these woodpeckers eating seeds when they are generally meat eaters.

  15. Nice pecker. As the British say, keep your pecker up. (It means stay cheerful as a bird)

  16. This might well be what's on the woodpecker's mind when finding his free dinner!

    Lovely.

  17. replying to your comment on my blog about haiga
    haiga is basically a combination of art and poetry - traditionally the art would be simple brush strokes and the poetry would be haiku.

    What you've got here is certainly akin to haiga, but I'd hesitate to class it as such (mine isn't either in the traditional sense)

    you mention "tanga" and I'm not sure if this was a typo and you meant "tanka". Like haiku, tanka is NOT a syllabic form of verse, despite years of it being misrepresented as such among English-language teachers and others.
