Kraig-

It's amazing that squirrel has survived as long as it has being so conspicuous.

The pileated woodpeckers are a real treat to see and are usually seen in pairs. I think I read that somewhere. I have a pair close by and when I see one the other is always around. They can be quite vocal as well. I've seen them fly across the pasture in front of the house here and that's really a neat thing to witness. Their wingspan is as big if not bigger than a crows.

The pic with both the squirrel and the woodpecker merits being framed.

The wife goes through about 30 pounds of suet every winter feeding the 5 we have come every day! LOL
This is the wimpy male.

More Pileated woodpecker photos. Saturday there was a steady stream of them visiting my suet feeder. Took a bunch of photos, here's two that show the difference between the male and female. Just in case someone doesn't know, the male has more red on his head.

The white squirrel is still hanging around. He/she all but disappears when he/she is on any of the scarce patch of snow.

Drifter, that's the name we gave to the white squirrel, was back again today. Cold this morning -2F, but the squirrel didn't seem to mind.

As always, thanks for the pics Kraig. The squirrel is special. At least very different.

My winter home is in Zephyrhills Florida. There's a very popular skydiving business (Skydive City) at the ZH airport; the planes hauling the divers up go on all day long. Most of the time, you can't see them from my park (the other side of town) until they open the parachutes. On this day, this group (I never checked on who, where from, etc)was doing some formation work from almost the time they left the plane. I'd watched them for two or three minutes (just dots in the sky) and finally went in the house and got my new pocket camera - a Sony HX99 that has a 700 mm equivalent telephoto reach and as with a lot of Sony cameras, has image stabilization. These pics were all hand held and are cropped from larger jpgs. To the naked eye, these were not much more than dots...

Sigh... and so it continues. Well maybe, they've been wrong before.

OK, this is way off topic and a long shot, so I figured I'd stick it here.
Can anyone tell me who this artist is? This is a painting that was my grandmother's and I don't know what to do with it.

Had a visitor this evening. I happened to glance out the window and spotted a black bear. The photos are not that great as I took them through the windows and screens.

Lets see if this link works... Here's a link to a video of the bear that passed through my yard yesterday evening.

Very cool! We see bears up at my in-laws place in Ely MN somewhat often but rarely, if ever, that close!

This picture was taken across the "ball field", an open field of cleared trees about the size of a small baseball field. The mama bear would use the big tree in the middle there to teach the cubs to climb, I think. Unfortunately, that tree along with many other large old trees were lost to a windstorm a couple of years ago.
