Today was a day filled with mundane tasks. Wrapping up mid-afternoon, a quick look outside caused these two Downy Woodpeckers to catch my eye.
For once I had my camera set up for birding as earlier in the morning I was hoping to capture a Winter Wren. With no luck of course. These downy’s were flying in and around the older trees for at least 20 minutes. I was able to enjoy them and their dance in the air. Such a beautiful sight.
We’re losing social skills, the human interaction skills, how to read a person’s mood, to read their body language, how to be patient until the moment is right to make or press a point.
