So this is no longer a G-rated blog?!

Almost made me blush. :-)

Outstanding captures on the woodpecker's intimate moments.

jannagae - Welcome! Glad you liked the pix. Stop back soon.
Larry - Thanks for the thumbs up. Much appreciated coming from you.
Gwendolen - Thanks much. "Over here" is oversees?


What a wonderful sighting. Over here seeing a woodpecker is something of a sensation, let alone seeing them mate.

Nice captures and great information Nancy! I have been witness to many matings in the last few weeks. I haven't been able to capture very many on film though. Good job!


I just found your site through twitter. These are amazing pictures. I have loved birds all of my life. I am so happy to see actual photographs. Thank you for sharing.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
