One day Aliya was standing by the open front door looking outside and jabbering away about something. Finally she came and grabbed me by the hand and said, "come 'ere, Mom, 'ook, a chicken. A chicken, Mom." This is what she saw...
A Downey Woodpecker
This would be my favorite thing to take pictures of, that is any kind of wildlife. What makes these bird pictures especially easy is that I have trees within 5 feet of my upstairs bedroom window, and the screen is conveniently missing as well!
