THE JURY IS STILL OUT ON THIS RAINY DAY HAIRSTYLE…

I’VE NEVER SEEN THE FEATHERS ON THE HEAD UP LIKE THIS BEFORE. IS THIS A FORM OF AIR DRYING THE FEATHERS? I SUPPOSE USING A BLOW DRYER MIGHT CREATE A FEW PROBLEMS

I IMAGINE IF ONE FEATHER DOESN’T DRY RIGHT AND LAY FLAT IT MIGHT AFFECT THEIR FLIGHT ABILITIES.

I’M GUESSING THAT THIS IS A RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER. NONE OF THE OTHERS HAVE THE RED FEATHERS ON THEIR HEAD IN QUITE THE SAME WAY.

THE GRUMPY DAY…

WATCH IT!

 

 

WELL…ONCE IN AWHILE YOU HAVE A DAY IN THE WOODS WHERE EVERYBODY IS ON EDGE…FLYING TOO CLOSE TO EACH OTHER…DIVE BOMBING AND USING INTIMIDATION TACTICS.

WHEN THIS KIND OF DAY STARTS TO UNFOLD YOU JUST HOPE THAT NOBODY GETS HURT AND THAT THINGS DON’T GO TOO FAR.

LIKE THIS…THIS IS GOING TOO FAR.

LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT BE TIME TO TAKE A CHOCOLATE BREAK, SHAKE HANDS AND MAKE UP.

DOOT DO DOOT DO DO…

Seeing the other bird, he “threw it into reverse”..And I imagine he probably stopped singing and I imagine he said “WHOA”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How did he not notice the big woodpecker dining right in front of him?
