A Winter Guest

suet-hog

Dear Friends, this boy(Pileated Woodpecker) was shopping for groceries in our 3 inches of new snow.   Jim had just put out a new suet block and he zeroed in on it.  The red dash under his chin marks him as a male, on females that spot is black.  Hope they will nest here in our woods, may have to sit out in the woods to see where they are working, til Tomorrow MJ
