Super Downy

The latest edition of I and the Bird is up. If you are new to the world of bird bloggers, this is a great way to sample the buffet of different bloggers out there. You may find someone else you totally enjoy. Perhaps even a blogger who refrains from using "totally."

This shot of a downy woodpecker just cracks me up. He looks like a speeding bullet, a supre downy if you will. If they weren't so dangerous if they flew into you, I kind of like the idea of woodpeckers swooping around, wings in, like little rockets.

I'm on my way to Atlanta for a big bird trade show called Bird Watch America. Hopefully, I'll see some new and innovative product in birding and bird attraction.
