Another Odd Bird...

Even this Red-bellied Woodpecker was afraid to peek!

Since the weather was a little rough this weekend, we stayed away from the BirdMobile(boo!) So we decided(the Doodles!) we'd go to Rocky River Reservation very close to home to see what we could see. And what did we see? Oh my. What we saw! And you soon shall see what we saw.

But first, you need to see what else we saw before you see what we saw that was not something you would normally see. See? So...

The Dark-eyed Junco couldn't believe we saw what he saw!

The Downy Woodpecker was wordless!

The Fox Sparrow felt faint!

The Northern Cardinal was incoherent!

The Pileated Woodpecker became perturbed!

The Song Sparrow was songless!

The White-breasted Nuthatch could see him and was ready to run UP the tree!

The Black-capped Chickadee said "He's not from my side of the nest!"


**CAUTION**
BE PREPARED!




AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
It's the scariest White-capped Black-capped Chickadee ever!

And I'll bet you thought there would be a photo of me at the end...ha.

  5. Wow another great post Dave. There are at least two birds I would love to see, first the cardinal, a second the pileated woodpecker! These are my dream birds... but all your shot are superb, and the white-black capped chickadee is something.... different ;-)

  14. Looks like the chickadee was trying to be an albino and didn't quite make it!

  15. Remarkable shots all round but the chickadee, Inconceivable! Blown up, your Pileated capture is pretty remarkable in its own right.
