A New Guest


The Ladder-backed Woodpeckers on our land are notoriously shy and I can never capture a good shot of them. It seems a little bribery works wonders as this beautiful little female just couldn't resist the lure of the suet feeder. Photographed at last!

Very nice! And congrats:) It's always exciting to host a new visitor to our feeders:)

I've also found the ladder-backs to be very camera shy. Great idea to use a suet feeder to attract them. Adorable portrait! :)

A nice yardbird, my woodies love the suet too. Great shot!

Thanks Chris, it has taken them a long time to come into the feeders but it was lovely to see them up close.

Celeste said...

Thanks Roberta, I thought so too :)

Celeste said...

They are aren't they Diane, I wonder why that is. Maybe because the Gilas are so raucous?

I think everyone loves the suet Eileen, I could bankrupt myself trying to keep them supplied!!
