An Ivory Bill Woodpecker in My Yard


A short hub, to say the least.

But I have to share with you the latest pictures of the Southeastern U.S.'s most elusive bird. I took these pictures out of my bathroom window while this critter was knocking away at an old pecan tree.

The Ivory Bills are common out on the island, and seldom come to the shore here in Lulawissie. But my back yard is right on the lake shore and about 1/3 of a mile from Fahy's Island where they love to roost. It was a beautiful sight to behold! Proof that these birds are not extinct!

Once again, it was a beautiful day here in Lulawissie. The sun was shining brightly through the crisp and cold air, warming your back as your shoes crunched on the icy shoreline.

As always, I leave you with my usual words: Always do good deeds for people that you don't know, give the Good Lord thanks for all that he blesses you with, and be well!

God's peace be with you.
