Small woodpeckers are the norm around our house.

Red bellied a favorite of mine,Downys, and Hairys like the female here.

Imagine my delight when this fellow started coming around.

He would come in and leave quick...and when he did stay around he seemed to always hide on the other side of the tree when my camera came out...camera shy???

Well this time he was feeling bold I guess and allowed me to get a few shots.

Here is the best one.

Hey Dave...yes,I agree with Don, those are great shots. At a train show last year I bought an HO scale woodpecker and when I placed it in a tree on my layout I thought it looked more like an O-scale bird........that was until one Saturday morning when movement caught my eye out my living room window! Holy mackeral, sapphire....two gigantic looking birds! Yes, I dug out my bird book to learn that they were pileated woodpeckers...monsters. Yes, mine is HO scale!

Here in western Missouri the ground has been frozen rock hard and covered with snow since January 12. But this little reminder of August's dog days still clings to a branch of the barren maple tree.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm a busy man. I have a railroad to run.

Hi folks. I'm back home in Melbourne, Australia for a few days to check the house and do the past six months of garden maintenance that has fallen overdue while I wander elsewheres.

While out in the front garden this morning, pulling and pruning and all the rest of those back breaking chores, I had the pleasure to welcome this very keen eyed and interested visitor.

My young kookaburra friend sat on the fence about 10feet away and watched intently while I pulled weeds and overgrowth. He got down on the ground at one stage and poked about for a few grubs and lizards. Not sure if he's a young one or just hungry from the severe drought that is gripping Australia at the moment. They don't usually come this close unless they're acustomed to taking handouts.

Here's a closer shot:

Some years back when I worked in Sydney, we had a family of kookaburras that would drop by the office balcony everytime we had a barbeque. They're quite partial to a good beef steak.
