I have always found the Woodpecker to be a fascinating creature. They are interesting feathered friends and I wanted to say I think God had some great ideas when he created the world. The woodpecker is one of them. They are just interesting looking birds and their purpose is something our Maker must have had in mind when he decided to blueprint this bird!
We can always smile when we see a woodpecker if we grew up with "Woody" one of the most famous woodpeckers who also had his own cartoon show. Woodpeckers are found worldwide except for Australia, New Zealand, Madagascar and the extreme polar regions. They live in forests and woodlands. A few of this species lives in treeless areas  such as rocky hilltops and deserts. There are about 200 species and this bird is becoming endangered due to loss of habitat  and habitat fragmentation. You may see one of these often colorful birds hanging around your home as they love wood and like to bore through wood! Keep your eyes out for these interesitng birds.

Good morning Anne, I just read some of your posts I missed. I love your header with your mom's photos. I will always miss my mom too. She was the strength, love and joy in my life. I know your mom was all of these things and more. We are lucky to have ad a wonderful mom who was a special blessing.

I am so happy you have your new home and wish you many years of happiness as you get settled in. The painting from your brother is a very special gift indeed.

I too love woodpeckers. We see them often here in the mountains.

Wishing you happy festive days ahead.
Hugs, Jeanne

They are pretty and they're noisy when they tap their mating taps on the house. We have one and the whole house seems like it shakes.
