Somebody doesn't have a happy face. Good thing they don't have long memories, cause my daughter is constantly catching them to show me how cute they are. We have a pond in our back yard, and we feed them, so they aren't shy to come right up to your feet.
This beautiful guy was making lots of noise this morning. He was about 25 feet up in the tree, so these were the best views I could get of him. He didn't think I was important enough to interrupt his breakfast search!
Good thing I'm not a woodpecker, cause my headaches would have me starving. He really makes a lot of noise.
We took this fellow's picture earlier this summer. He is called an Anhinga. The interesting thing about him is that he dives into the water for his food, and then has to dry his wings out before he can fly, cause he doesn't have the water repellent on his wings that other birds do.
So, what kind of neighbors do you have??
