We named her Wilma

Sher and I were thrilled a couple of days ago when we saw for just a second a stunning Pileated Woodpecker who came in and landed on our tree. Almost immediately it took off.  Yesterday, however, another (maybe the same?) Pileated female came in and ended up feeding from one of the suet cages.

Notice the little Nuthatch that photobombed the video? The size of Wilma seems to have spooked it from the suet cage.

  1. We got one woodpecker that comes around three times a year to visit our orchid tree and bird water dish. The sparrows seem to tolerate his presence. He doesn’t eat any of the birdseed. Just pecks into the tree for a minute or two. Then gone till his next cycle.
