Bad video of a gorgeous bird! (Pileated Woodpecker)

Posted on Jan 5, 2011 | 2 comments

Hi all! I’m still without internet at home per the prior post…but the local coffeeshop is getting quite used to me working here…even when I’m actually working rather than playing with the garden blog! (Thank you, Perk on Wedington…)

I took this choppy, grainy video at super-zoom out a window. Then tried iMovie for the first time and got that weird “My First Project” frame. But being over my head tech-wise is nothing new for me.

So here is our big, beautiful Pileated woodpecker going to town on what must be a delicious spot in a knotty oak tree.  Enjoy it…he sure was!

  1. You need to come to my place to see our Anna’s hummingbird he’s still here! I have two lawn chairs about 20′ in front of the porch for guests to sit in now to watch him he’s so popular!

    You have a beautiful web site. I’m having one designed for CareSupport Services, hope it will be a nice as yours, Sara

    • I’d heard there was a special hummingbird hanging out in the area. I didn’t know it was you! Would love to see. Thanks for stopping by the blog Sara!
