For the next few weeks Christy and I will be presenting a handful of our favorite photos that have been previously posted on the blog as we enter the ever busy holiday season. Hope you enjoy them and have a happiest of holidays.

A few weeks ago and just a minute or two after remaking that there seemed to be no birds in the woods this particular afternoon, we came across this white breasted nuthatch doing his thing on an old cottonwood tree. Look like a nice meal is in the works.

Just like that bit of peach fuzz on a teenage kid this male Downey Headed Woodpecker is just beginning to sprout those distinctive red feathers that makes a boy a man.
