First pair of wood ducks

Finally



After a winter of chasing the elusive pileated woodpecker who lives right outside my window in this poplar tree, I finally captured him today. They just don't sit still long enough for me to run and get my camera. But today, this one did. There is a pair which apparently are nesting around the swamp.

Got up way too early for a Saturday morning and headed down to Underwood, MN for another Garden Days. I ran late, so I was worried about finding the school in time to get to my first class at nine. No problem. Underwood is a town of 312 people, and there were over 700 people at the Garden Days, so it was quite obvious where I should go. They even had a separate speaker's entrance and parking area, for which I was grateful.
