A Flicker in a Nest

Marcia and I have religiously been taking walks in the morning.  We go about 3,000 steps and then she drops off to go to work from home and I continue the walk.  Trent joined us one day, so we walked up to see Lot 13 which has a house on it.

The siding has not been finished on the house and when we walked to the north side, Trent was sure that he could see a bird head.

Check it out, because we did, getting just a little closer.

And then a little closer.

I couldn't help advancing and advancig, as near as the bird would allow without flying away.

When the flicker left its nest we wanted to see inside but there was no ladder, and as tall as Trent is,
he wasn't tall enough to get a glimpse of what was there in the darkness of the cavity.

Marcia left to go to work.
Dave Wood joined us for the last part of the walk.

A good time was had by all.
