I must say..this Merlin Falcon
visits about daily now..
Found a good hunting ground, here in our yard.
He's partial to Dark Eyed Juncos..for
I have found evidence of MURDER
in the yard..
eeekkk..I guess even Falcons have to eat..
Oh I meant to add ..according to the bird books, the Merlin Falcon doesn't come to Illinois!!
they sure do!!

Oh how I love my Woodpeckers.
The top one is a Downy Woodpecker, tis
a female as males have more red on the tip
of their heads...
..and the other pictures are my
most fave Red Belly Woodpecker.
All dressed up in his black & white!!
This one is a male, I can tell by the amount
of red on his head.
I took these through the window again..as it
snowed a bit and I can't risk slipping on the deck.
It's been 1 month and two days since surgery!

THIS is why I don't have a dishwasher in my home.
Yesterday as I was getting dishes ready to wash
I saw this directly out the window.
Tis a Merlin Falcon, sitting in the Hickory tree above
the bird feeders..If I had a dishwasher, I'd miss these
It was cold & snowy out..so I took the pic THROUGH the window
didn't even try to go out.
I can't believe how good the picture is.
I did not see him grab any dinner (usually a small bird)
but I know..Merlin's have to eat too..why can't
they just eat MICE???
Nature always thrills me..
did I tell you ??Rich has given my a Native American name
Waves at Wildlife
It suits me fine..I wave at deer, fox, turkeys, anything that will
look at me
