We had our palm trees trimmed and cleaned up today, and a beautiful Red-Bellied Woodpecker came along to check things out.

Both male and female Red-Bellied Woodpeckers have red on the nape of the neck and some have red on the face. But the red covering the entire top of the head indicated that this was a male woodpecker.

And one of my favorites of Sophie and Lulu. I used this photo to make a Christmas card a couple of years ago, trimming away the backyard background and replacing it with a Christmas background.
