I caught the culprit......

We have a really cool tree in our back yard atop what I call the "grassy knoll". And its seriously high up there. I always found it strange that my kids didn't want any kind of tree house up there, because seriously - that would've been the FIRST thing I did when we moved it. But I digress. A couple weeks ago some neighborhood kidlets "discovered" the tree and decided to trespass, I just kept my beady little eyes on them, and as the muttlings didn't bark (some watchdogs they are-a totally different story there) I let it pass. WELLLLLL!!! A FEW days ago I heard banging and thought the little trespassers decided they would make a tree house, and when I investigated found NO HUMANS around. What I did find was HIM-Mr. Woodpecker just banging away. He was on the ground, and as you can't see there were a TON of crunchy leaves between him and me. As most of you may know, I'm not the quietest or coordinated person around, so I'm attempting to creep up on him a bit at a time. I did rather good, until he got "wind" of me bwahahaha and flew off . Caught him another tree (obviously not the cool one). He was a very intent bird so I'm thinking he'll be back. I'll be practicing my sneaking on crunchy leaves til then bwahahahaha!
