Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"
Good shot. Birds can be quite challenging. I have the same problem with a door and some blue jays who hang around a big oak tree right by our house. I'm actually thinking of investing in a chair blind!
Wonderful capture; patience always wins...you finally got a good shot of the Gila Woodpecker!
This seems like a strange and pointless type of palm tree for a woodpecker to attack.
It's so cute! Great capture, Sharon.
Wow what a great capture. Lucky you.
What a great find! I like those stripes.
Yes, they are a tricky type. Good shot, Sharon.
I love the colors on Gila Woodpeckers. They really are skittish about noises. I guess it's a bit of a double standard. They have no problem with waking you up at 6am, but if you so much as crack the door a bit, they leave in a huff!Great shot.
I've known gila monsters, but not gila woodpeckers. What makes something a "gila"?Nice shot. In fact, I've tried to get photos of birds in those cut-off palm branches - very difficult. You did good!
I have never even heard of them! Must be a western bird since it isn't in my bird book. Great shot of him.
Wonderful! The tree reminds me of the sabal palms back in Florida. How I miss those at times!
Oh, these guys are very flighty and they have a very distinctive call. Great shot, Sharon.
Terrific capture, Sharon. I don't know anything about the bird, but I do appreciate the great picture.
I love their black and white design. Have you ever heard woodpeckers when they pound away on metal? What a noise!
Great catch. Every time I take a photo of a bird they move and are a blur.
