The Cottonwood trees were horrible here this year







This was just as the sun was starting to warm the morning skies
we have as many cottonwood trees here as we do black walnut trees

And yes, that is the stump from the tree that fell on the house last winter

I know... and it continued for several weeks like this, ever with all the rain we've had.

Prayers going up for those involved.

this is what we woke up to this morning
this is my front porch, my van, and the table on the back patio
it's just a little ice, not enough to take out power lines, thank goodness! :pray:

I've got quite the bird parade going on in my backyard these days
a pair of cardinals, bluejay, woodpecker, doves, swallows, robins, just to name a few
managed to catch that cardinal on the swing, he sure stands out!

and there was a newcomer this morning, I think he's a parakeet, he let me get close! lol :bravo:

I manage to get just a little closer to that woodpecker every day, still want to capture that bluejay too, but the slightest noise and he's gone lol :sad:

I have one of them woodpeckers here too... I can always hear it before I see it. It's a very distinct noise.
I also have a pair of smaller Downy woodpeckers that stop by the feeder... very people friendly.
