Woodpecker Wednesday!

#1 here. At Poupounette Central, we have lots and lots of birds who put on great Bird TV channel programming each and every day. Of course, in return, they get great food on a daily basis. This time of year, one of our most favourite visitors is a Great Downy Woodpecker. He used to be very shy but recently, he has sat on the branch in front of the feeder long enough for me to take some great photos. So, may we present:

We wouldn't want to leave you totally kitty deprived, so here, as a bonus, is a photo of Genji on his favourite blue Peggy's blankie

Also a reminder that the auction at  Purple Kattery Studio is still going through February 29th They could really use some bids, so if you haven't been yet, do please stop by!


  1. Those are great pictures of the woodpecker!
    We have not seen our woodpeckers yet, but then mum is not home all day ;)
    You are looking good Genji!

  2. What a cool bird! I don't think I've ever seen a woodpecker at all - we don't get them much around here.

  3. Great pictures of the woodpecker. He sure is pretty and good to see Genji. Hope he is doing well.

  4. You have different woodpeckers than we have here of course and I LOVE seeing them and the others...squirrels included.

    Here, at least at my Vet office, they do a pre surgery blood test to make sure nothing is amiss with my system and body parts before the dental or any surgery. If there is they fix that and then do the dental when All is well. xoxo

  5. The Great Downy Woodpecker is certainly a beautiful bird! I love the photos. They are well done and really show off the colors of the Woodpecker. I took Ornithology in college, but the birds are very different in Ohio. I'm looking forward to seeing more beautiful photography in the near future. Hurray! It's a Woodpecker Wednesday!

  7. J'aime beaucoup les piverts. C'est une chance de pouvoir l'observer de près.
    Ici j'en entends souvent un taper dans les arbres. Mais c'est impossible de le voir. Je l'entends aussi s'envoler en ricanant ... et reste frustrée.

    Genji ta couverture spéciale te va très bien au teint et en plus elle semble faire un parfait nid douillet.

    Bonne soirée

  8. Dang, that is one good looking woodpecker and terrific photos!

  9. Very handsome woodpecker but our Dad says they can be very annoying with all their pecking noise:)

    Good to see Da Genji.

  10. Those are lovely photos of the woodpecker. We get them here eating the peanuts, but the slightest movement and they are gone.

  11. What a cool looking bird. Our mom and dad are backyard birders too.

  12. Oh Wow! Mes not seen any of those since mes moved to Vancouver. There was one in our backyard in Midway....
    Lost of healing kisses for Genji and some "gorgeous Man cat" Kisses for the beebs!
    Mes has also given up on Mommy and has started my own blog!
