35 year wait for this !

Postby Russ Emmons » Thu Jul 27, 2017 3:52 am

Yes 35 years been waiting for a shot like this right in our own back yard & right out the kitchen window :W
Just the past few years we found there is a pair way back in our woods. Only rarely will they come up to the property & this was the very first time right up to the house :D

Nice shot Russ! That is a long wait to say the least, hopefully they will show themselves more often now.
Glad to see you back posting.
Take care,

Excellent Russ! Mine are sporadic this year.... probably because the bazillion grackles kept eating all the suet!
A red headed woodpecker adult and juve have been stopping by a bit tho.... haven't really had any of them for a few years!
