  14. Wow, so cool to spot such an exotic creature in your front yard! Hope it didn't peck too much of your wood though... ;)

  15. Great subject. How lucky you had this interesting creature. Your blog is spotted too or am I just seeing spots? I bet you could hear that woodpecker before you could see him.
