I also Feb - Squirrel copystumbled upon my very first woodpecker who let me get within a foot of his tree – and a squirrel who was, I must say, a bit perturbed by my presence. Perhaps spring is right around the corner. No…wait…the sun and blue skies rattled me…this is Oregon…spring here begins in June. Sigh…well there is always hope and more flowers waiting to bloom.
