downy woodpecker

what an exciting sighting! just before breakfast we discovered a pair of downy woodpeckers. the kids were not to sit down, they were just glued to the birds eating our sunflower seeds!
and soon enough an american goldfinch was joining them in their mid morning meal.
i was once more awe struck. we do live in the middle of a big city, have no real back yard and there wild life is presented for us to enjoy.
once more the children lead us and show us how wonderful nature is...
