Rex is snazzy in his red “cap” … just like Santa! #Wordless Wednesday #Male Red-Bellied Woodpecker

Wordless Wednesday – allow your photo(s) to tell the story.

About Linda Schaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub

      Thank you Anne – he sure is beautiful. I am sure he is the same woodpecker I featured in the Winter against the blue sky sitting on the decimated tree. That’s where I used to see him before this Safe Haven tree.

      I know Andy – the coloring on this woodpecker is amazing. The female is similar, just no red “cap”, just the red nape of the neck. I’ve gotten close-ups as the woodpecker is going to the tree to get peanuts. I was pretty close to him on the path here – lucky for me!
