The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

CAUTION: Woodpecker Work Zone

That is a lot of woodpecker debris!


  1. There was a time we had the same holes in a tree in our garden but the woodpecker put hazelnuts in it to crack them there. Pity we don't have the tree anymore.

  2. Yes, they are hard workers, amazing they make such huge holes.

  3. Wow, that's a whole lot of chipping going on!

  4. I think it's amazing they can do that without hurting their beaks.

  5. He's been really busy. I have one who has been attempting to start a hole on a tree outside my window, but he isn't getting very far on that oak!

  6. Very Cool!

    Warm ALOHA,


  7. Great shots - the first date I took my wife on was to see woodpeckers nesting! oh, the romance!

    Lord Howe also reminded me of the Pacific NW - but only on the days it rained!

  8. I hope he got a good meal.

    At work, my boss's wife had a big wash tub turned upside down out behind the house. For a while, every day this flicker would come and bang on it. We never did understand what he thought he was doing.
