Apologies for the grainy, badly exposed shot, but this was the best I could do through a window on a gray morning. That's a red-bellied woodpecker in my backyard, trying in vain to get something interesting from the spindly trunks back there. While I do see interesting birds from my window occasionally, this is the first woodpecker.
There was a female cardinal as well, but she was sitting behind too many branches to be photographed. She had a long strip of paper in her beak, probably for nest-building, but the effect was extremely festive, like a one bird ticker tape parade.
