The Red Headed WoodPESTER
This is the RED verbena plant I bought today. I love verbena (especially when it's red)
I hung it up under my umbrella in the back using a long "S" hook.
This is strange, but my mum from the fall decided it wanted to bloom, so I have been nuturing it, too.
See all those blooms ready to burst out?
Now, back to the woodpecker. Can you find him? He's in the pine tree.
He's on the trunk on the right side about middle of the picture. He's watching me watch him. :)
At first, I was thrilled to see a woodpecker in my yard. But then, he started standing guard, and running off all the other birds. But that's not the worst.
The worst part is that he PECKS on my metal gutter. The first time I heard it, I didn't know what in the world could be making that noise, but it was him.
After looking it up on the net, I found that he may be doing it to attract a mate. But I don't want him damaging my gutter. Also, did you know that they are on the endangered list?
Thanks for stopping by, and I am joining Susan for "Outdoor Wednesday" and
Sue for "Rednesday. Stop by their blogs for more fun pics.
