Woody Came to Visit

Last week Woody came to visit our backyard. Since this big beautiful Pileated Woodpecker had not been a regular at our feeding statioin, he drew a lot of attention when he showed up.

Woody is a really big bird. Compared to the other birds that regularly visit our feeders, Woody is definitely the biggest. To see how much bigger, take a look at the two following pictures.

Here is the original picture enlarged so that the suet feeder is the same size as in the following picture of a chickadee.

Both birds are now displayed at the same scale and you can clearly see that the whole chickadee is smaller than Woody’s head.

Now that Woody has discovered our feeder, I hope he comes back to visit us often.

Cheers – DJD
