This Guy Needs a Mate and Other HappeningsPosted: June 28, 2016
Several times every morning, this Red Bellied Woodpecker drills on that same piece of gutter. It took a few times of running out of the house to see what the noise was about until I discovered the Woodpecker. This behavior has been going on well over a month. This guy needs to find a mate!
Frick and Frack, the Carolina Wrens, built another nest on the porch in a pot next to the back door. They wisely decided to abandon it, probably due to the constant slamming of the door. The Wrens did not go far and have been in the yard with their new brood.
Another bird sighting that I was unable to photograph, is several young American Robins. Robins usually head north for the summer, but in recent years they have begun to stay here on the steamy Gulf Coast. I am thrilled to have them singing in my trees.
