I love nature and I have always been fond of birds. As a kid, I had bird figurines in my room, a big Audubon bird book with brilliant pictures, and even a pet cockatiel named Pretty Boy.
In my yard I have seen many mockingbirds and blue jays, but I am always happy to see woodpeckers of any kind. The one I snapped pictures of is a Downey Woodpecker. Isn't he cute?
I have also noticed American Tree Sparrows, Nuthatches, various species of Blackbirds, Cardinals, Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, Doves, and a few other I haven't yet been able to identify.
There is no end to the wonder and fascination of nature and all of its beauty.
