A Napkin Please

A Napkin Please
Walton County, Georgia 

Several Downy Woodpeckers (Picoides pubescens) visit our log feeder; at least one male and three females. When she left the feeder after enjoying breakfast, however, his female was going to have to clean the excess seed from her beak by wiping it on a branch.

Hey Joan!
I can't often see your posts, I am afraid my computer is getting old and it can't handle all the photos. It's a shame, because I will be able to see your first photo and it is such a teasing thing, since I want to read what you have written! AHH!!!
My husband and I have learned so many plants from Arabia Mountain and we had a wonderful time listening to the Spring Peepers in January, wow, they were so loud!

Hi Kay!. If you are subscribing to my posts and receive them by e-mail, I think you are seeing the complete post (I do). I've been doing more 'brief' posts with just a few sentences as well as some longer posts.
I need to go back over to Arabia Mountain. I saw some photos of early season lichens/plants recently and it reminded me of the beauty of that area.
Yes, Sprimg Peepers seem to be the earliest callers each year and *are* really loud if you're in the right place.
