Last weekend I woke up early, got up, and drove from the desert to our local mountains. Since today is my first day of spring break, I slept in! (until 6:00 a.m.!!!) However, on this particular morning, the sky was clear, the air was cold, the wind was blowing, and I was alone in the forest. This little woodpecker and his buddies were my only companions. And, they were busy calling to each other, so it was quite a symphony! I got out my big Olympus camera, but this was the closest I could get before this little fellow moved on.
