Yesterday, was a day of celebration in our home. Our daughter graduated from Berry College with a dual major in English Literature and Spanish, and with a love for learning (and for God) that has her heading to seminary in just a few short weeks.
The day was capped off with cause for even more celebration, as this Red-headed Woodpecker made his first appearance of the season.
I’m pretty sure this is the same fellow that has come for the past couple of summers, just stopping in to make sure that the Backyard Diner was still in business.
Isn’t his head the very definition of red?!
He perched on an overhead spot and and gave everything a thorough look…
…and then briefly landed on a lower branch before flying away.
I’m hoping he will once again be a regular visitor who repays my steady supply of meals with a willing spirit to pose.
