Acorn on the Wing


I love Acorn Woodpeckers. Maybe it’s their clown-like raucous character or their striking plumage – whatever it is they always delight me. This female decided to hawk insects above my head for a few minutes and it was amazing to watch her pick nearly invisible bugs from the air.


Above, she has just snapped up a bug and is about to return to her perch.


It can be hard to detect their grace unless you slow them down or freeze a moment in time.
