I am sharing two of my favorite birds, the Pileated Woodpecker and the Rose-breasted Grosbeak.  

The Rose-breasted Grosbeak is a migrant bird, I usually see them just for a few days in early May. The male is a gorgeous bird with the pretty rose-colored breast. 















I have been noticing the Pileated Woodpecker has found a few spots on my side yard they like to peck at. On 5/4 I heard their loud call outside my bedroom window. I looked out and was surprised to see 3 Pileated Woodpeckers in a tree right outside the window. Two of them flew to a tree stump hubby put near the garden. It was a treat to see 3 Pileated Woodpeckers together in my yard. 


The Pileated Woodpeckers were moving around on this tree, it was hard trying to get a clear shot through the window while they were moving. 


They were moving around on this tree stump too, their head pecking away looking for bugs.

Our World, My World

Happy Monday, 

I wanted to share some more photos from our getaway to Shenandoah Nat'l Park. We saw a Black Bear along the drive and took a short walk on Big Meadows and my favorite trail called the Limberlost Trail.  

The view from the Range View overlook on the Skyline Drive.



A Shenandoah Nat'l park bird mosaic: Top row are the Red-eyed Vireo, Scarlet Tanager, Hooded Warbler. Middle Row is the Indigo Bunting. Bottom Row is a female American Redstart, not sure maybe a Veery and last a Great-crested Flycatcher. 


Pink Trillium, a pretty wildflower found in the park. 



Some of the Shenandoah Nat'l Park wildflowers. 


A Black Bear seen along the side of the Skyline Drive.  





A view of the Limberlost Trail.  We watched a couple of Eastern Phoebe in this area. 



Not sure what this moth/butterfly is?  


The Indigo Bunting was a common bird seen in the park, they were everywhere we went in the park. 






Thanks for your visit today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.

Saturday's Critters #282

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!

Happy Mother's Day! My wish includes all the mom's of the 4 legged critters too.

These are some birds seen in my yard and neighborhood (fire road) on 4/29 through 4/30. 

The Pine Warbler can be seen at my feeder and deck daily.



4/29 & 4/30 the Red-breasted is still making an appearance at my feeders. 




The Gray Catbird on the deck railing.  



The nearby Great Blue Herons on their nest. 



A Northern Parula on a tree top at the end of our driveway. I have been hearing these birds singing all around our yard and off the fire roads. They are breeders here at the Prettyboy Watershed. 




The Ovenbirds are singing loudly in the woods and fire road. This is another breeder in our local forest.
