Good morning! Huge storm plowed through last
night with fierce winds and heavy rain. Sometimes
strange weather shakes nature up a bit.
Sunday morning when O’Half and I were having eggs
for breakfast with the Sunday papers, I had a nice
surprise—a two yolked egg! Something special is
going to happen today for me I thought.
But Sunday came and went without much of a sign.
Monday was Memorial Day and I took the grandkids
to the parade. *This* will be day, and I waited for a
special event. And, although we had fun, and the
parade was great
nothing out of the ordinary happened–except that the littlest one
volunteered to carry the lawn chair!! Good, but not worthy of two yolks.
But this morning, I think my reward has hit. I was looking out the
breakfast room window and saw a Dryocopus pileatus! That’s pileated
woodpecker to you. They are just the grandest of birds! Huge and
beautiful. And, and, wait for this—–there were TWO of them!!
Ho-ho! there’s the two yolked sign!
By the time I found the camera, only one was still there. But he was
fine all on his own. As I said, strange weather shakes up nature sometimes
and these birds were doing some exploring in new territory.
I apologize for the poor photo, but if I don’t include it, you might not
believe me—-and I know you don’t believe that there were two, do you?

Signing off for now—booksandbuttonsandbirds!
