Are You Kidding Me? It’s April Already?
No matter where they are, birds are often curious about humans - especially those with big ol' cameras.
Mike Daniels found a few curious birds on a trip to New Mexico.
This acorn woodpecker can tilt its head pretty well as it takes a break from a meal.
According to the National Audubon Society, the acorn woodpecker likes the warm temperatures of the American Southwest. Montana is not among the bird's favorite destinations. I don't think any were seen at last Saturday's "Welcome Back Waterfowl" day at the Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge near Stevensville. We do have plenty of other types of woodpeckers in the valley, though.
This species of woodpecker also has a habit of storing food in dead trees for year-round meals.
Just don't bother them at lunchtime.
