The weather man is threatening us with a big snow snow storm over the next 48 hours. With that in mind I ventured out in the still blue-hue of this morning to forage for food. As I was standing at the checkout I happened to look out the windows overlooking the parking lot and lo and behold there was a Downy woodpecker In a small tree closely. Downies are not rare here that's for sure but for one to be jamming away in a busy parking lot in a small tree is! I dare say he got the weather report too and thus his bold and adventurous spirit today.
