I had a unique encounter with this cute little Woodpecker the other day.
I was sitting outside in our porch swing, with a tree directly behind me. I suddenly heard the flutter of a bird's wings behind me, and turned to look. As I did so, I startled this little Woodpecker and it immediately flew away... I watched as the poor thing flew straight into our garage window! It made quite the thump when it hit, but it was able to fly to a nearby tree where it sat very still. I walked over, and could tell the little bird was still stunned from it's hard hit on the window.
It turned to look at me, but let me come very close. I hurried back inside to grab my camera, hoping it would still be there when I returned. I was glad that it was! It was such a pretty Woodpecker, and smaller than most I've seen!
It let me take several pictures before it seemed to have recovered some and finally flew away further up in the tree. I was thankful the Lord allowed me to see this pretty bird up close, I always love seeing the amazing variety in His creation.
He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
