Woodland WA, Backyard Beauties

Sitting out on the back patio at dusk at Felicia and Jeff's we had some visitors!  They have a patch of trees right behind their house and a pair of Northern Flicker woodpeckers have pecked out a home in a tree next to their fence.  I have been on the lookout for some decent pics of them and this evening I lucked out!

If that wasn't enough, we had a visit from a Great Horned owl as well!  After hanging out in the trees for a while he hopped down into the grass and stayed there until we got tired of watching him.  It was pretty dark by then so the pics are not clear but you get the gist!:)

Dark-Eyed Junco, yep, that is the name of this guy and..........

he sure could sing and when he did his tail vibrated

then the owl showed up
