Geese and Woodpeckers

I think I've shown you these particular geese before because they live at a home next to our state park. The one with rather raggedy feathers is a Sebastopol goose. The other may be a graylag goose, or it could be hybrid. It does look like it has a few curly feathers.

I don’t have any new birds for Wild Bird Wednesday, and the ones that I photographed recently are the same species I’ve been showing for a month. I went back in my collection of unused pictures from a couple of years ago and found these downy woodpeckers. The one with the red patch on his head is a male.


  1. The picture with the ducks is beautiful and let it be a little fluffed!! Have a nice day!

  2. You can never have too many pictures of a woodpecker!

  3. The geese are so cute and I love the woodpeckers.
    Great photos. Take care, have a great day!

  4. ...there are plenty of woodpeckers here too.
