What’s Happening in Our Yard


While often heard in the woods around our house, the pileated woodpecker usually remains hidden from view. Lately, however, she has decided to decimate a tree right out our front windows. Yes, I believe we will be cutting down a tree come spring! In the meantime, it has been great for the kids and I to watch her at work.


The pumpkins that we couldn’t use and tossed on the compost heap have also been going to some good use. I think the rabbits and squirrels think they are in heaven this winter! Here’s a recently eaten pumpkin that was dragged out onto the lawn. The tracks around it look suspiciously like wabbit!
