Summer Update

It must definitely be mating season for the woodpeckers.  They land on the windowsills around the buildings and rat-a-tat at their reflections.  We also see them occasionally rat-a-tatting on the side of a house as we make our rounds each day.  





The two major species here are the Acorn Woodpecker



and the Gila Woodpecker


The Gila Woodpecker becomes very determined and can do some considerable damage when he wants to.  I took these photos a couple years ago.



Ballroom Construction continues as we hear the loud rat-a-tat-tat of jackhammers as they drill up concrete and dig to make footings for the new support beams.  I didn't don a hardhat today but just peeked through the fence to watch.




Outside, they are digging trenches for the footings.




That concludes my post for today.  I seem to be summoned for play duty with Mouse.  LOL

  1. Sue and Don, thanks so much for all of the updates. Watching the videos, seeing the pix- it is like being there- except- the only thing missing is feeling how darn hot it must be to be doing all of that work!! Including how hot it must be to be taking the pix!! thanks again. Bobbi and Lee Seabolt
