It's been a good week for the birds. This Pileated Woodpecker joined us for dinner. While it ate ants, we had chicken!
In addition the Goldfinches returned to the Northwoods today. Perhaps Spring is finally here. Just a touch of snow left in the yard! However, the Buffleheads are still stalled out down at Brighton Beach (Lake Superior). They should be up to the Canadian sub Arctic by now. All the lakes are still socked in with ice from this point north.
