I was sipping on my herbal (tusli-Indian basil and Ginger) tea one morning (yum-yum - another story) when I spotted couple of woodpeckers in the yard.
They are such beautiful birds with beautiful stripes and amazing plume (?) on their head- which fans out. I presume when they are excited…I am not sure though, would have to research it a bit further.
The one in the first picture still had some fuzzy growth around his neck; I am guessing he was still young at the time.
