Why no post?

Well, because we were out of town and busy. I didn't take the time to post anything.

What did we do and see?

Well, here's a teaser. More to come.


That is a read-headed woodpecker. Most North American woodpeckers have at least SOME red on their heads, but this one is particularly striking in its starkly contrasting colors. When it flies past, all you see is some black, a lot of white, and a flash of deep crimson. A very pretty bird.

Another National Geographic-grade pic!

Obviously the male. Prettier than the dowdy female. And that is the way things are in most species...to quote "Hair" the musical

Out of town AGAIN! Do you get frequent road user points?
