A downy woodpecker lands on the suet block this morning. Quick jerky movements getting that precious morsel of food that sustains her. So small and she needs so little, she is probably all muscle. Why do woodpeckers fascinate me so? I think it is their quick spontaneous movements, life important movements that I love. They remind me of me - very spontaneous – and often quick and always life important movements for me. If I were a critter, I probably would be a woodpecker – I love the black and white of the downy with just a touch of red.
