Mrs. Hairy


Yesterday, our yard was a frenzy of birds, where we usually have the same 4 bluejays, yesterday there were at least 16.  All that blue mixed in with the bright green grass and yellow dandelions was gorgeous!  Sometime in the afternoon, this female hairy woodpecker hit one of the windows and I found her quickly lying on her side.  I held for for a few minutes until she regained her equilibrium.  She never really seemed very frightened and when she felt better, she flew to a tree nearby and peaked at me from behind the trunk.
Always nice to have a happy ending!  Have a great weekend!

Love blue jays. I guess we only have 5% of the birds that we used to. So sad.

What a pretty bird, she looks so exotic. You are so lucky to have had such a personal encounter.
