This picture is the hornet's nest in our next door neighbor's back yard. Fortunately, it has been broken, so no hornets in the spring, not for a while at least.
I caught a shot of this female cardinal up in our cherry tree. I tried to get a shot of her while she was at the feeder and on the ground, but she didn't feel like holding still for any length of time.
Believe it or not, this is the first Red-headed woodpecker I have ever seen! I have seen Downey and Red-bellied, but never Red-headed. (S)he showed up a couple of times the other day, but not at all since.
this is the same woodpecker. This was actually the first pic I got, but when I loaded them onto my post, it put everything in the wrong order!
This little dove had been in my feeder, but when I stepped outside to get the shot, it jumped down to the ground. At least it didn't take off. This same pic was on the front page of the local newspaper on Thursday.
Mom's viewing and funeral are tomorrow, (Monday). Here is a link to the funeral home if you would like to leave an on-line condolence. If you don't want to, that's okay. Her name is Myrna . http://www.keplingerfuneralhome.com/.
I'm going to get off here so I can get to bed. We have a lot to do tomorrow, as we are having the after-service dinner here at our house. The funeral home already brought a couple of tables and several chairs.
I would like to thank everybody for leaving condolences either on my last post, or e-mailed directly to me. It is greatly appreciated.
