Hairy Woodpecker, Stained Glass, and Sourdough Starter...the Photo Essay

...check out the tongue!

...what a magnificent tail!


This is what my living room window looked like this morning. Next time I'll record a video instead of taking still lifes with woodpecker... I wish like hell that I had a camera the day a Northern Flicker was at this suet feeder. The Northern Flicker is completely gorgeous and looked to be about 3 times as big as this Hairy. The spots on the Flicker looked like totally insane gold-fleckled aboriginal circles.

And just below this window here's what my sourdough starter looked like this morning. It would be so cool to have a magnified video of all the goings on inside that jar! Go to that link if you want to know how to make your own sourdough starter and, of course, sourdough bread. (please let us all know if you have a favorite bread recipe to share!)
