Red-headed woodpecker

A Red-headed Woodpecker is a delightful find.  With it’s bright red head it is captivating and an exciting bird to add to ones list.  This one must have a nest nearby as it has been hanging around for several weeks in the south end of the Beaver Valley in the old growth forest which happens to border onto a quiet road. 5 images.

Monarchs are here!

Walking around the wetlands I found four Monarch’s and a different looking dragon fly, all floating on the breezes.  Did you know that Dragon Flies make similar migration journey’s to the Monarchs?  Who knew?  Makes them a little more fascinating. 3 photos.
