Here are some pictures that I have taken recently of Ranger and of the flowers in the yard. Enjoy!
This is a red-bellied woodpecker, common in Eastern woodlands and forests. From what I have read on the internet, I think that this one is a male. I will be looking for it again in the yard to try to get some more pictures. Ranger is good a scaring off the birds and squirrels, so I have to be quick!
