Female Hairy Woodpecker of the Vermilon River. A Post to My World Tuesday.

Not to be out done by the Chickadees, this female Hairy Woodpecker wanted to show off her acrobatic skills. Remember she can use that tail to balance herself. What do you think? Another 10...

I think between the Chickadee and the woodpecker, we've got a super team.
