It snowed here last Friday. On the left, below: chickadee butt. On the right: red-bellied woodpecker profile.
And it snowed again on Tuesday. Behold, the mighty pileated woodpecker!
Smokey said that when the pileated guy landed at the right-hand end of the railing, it seemed like it was standing there with its metaphorical hands on its metaphorical hips, saying, “WTF is all this white sh!t in my way?” Then it leaned over and used its beak to sweep away a couple inches of snow, marched forward, rinse and repeat until it got to the suet feeder.
