This year seems to be such a busy year for the birds. There are couples everywhere, from cardinals, to woodpeckers to Northern Flickers. They came out for courtship on sunny days and the neighborhood sounds absolutely beautiful.
These Norther Flicker couple are the loudest, and my camera zooms in all the way. Their calling is not very pleasant but more as in distressed!
~~Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort.~~Humphry Davy
