My first contribution to Camera Critters had to be a bird (of course).  And what better subject than the Acorn Woodpecker!  See my story about this clinging bird here Bring In The Clowns .


 Happy Birding!

Hi Bobbie, thanks for stopping by. These acorn woodpeckers are fun to watch too. This one is getting his exercise by doing pull ups!

Hi Juliana, Nice shots of the Parakeets! Don’t get them mixed up with bluebirds though.

Beautiful bird! I am partial to the pileated ones, myself, but they tend to be shy so it’s a treat to see them.

Hi and welcome to camera critters. This is a very beautiful – interesting bird. I have never heard of a acorn woodpecker before. He is really hanging in there.

Villas Girls last blog post..All too soon

Hi Tink, I love woodpeckers in general but you’re right about the Pileated Woodpecker, they are more rare in these parts too.


Larry September 20, 2008 at 7:32 pm

Hi Marie, Thanks for stopping by. Love the shots of Blackie!


Larry September 20, 2008 at 7:39 pm

Hi Nancy, Come visit us here in Northern California and you can see lots of Acorn Woodpeckers and a variety of other woodpeckers too! They are a joy to watch.
