Yesterday I was sitting quietly at the table when a large Pileated Woodpecker landed on a tree in the yard. This was one of those 4 second bird visits when you hardly have time to grab your phone, let alone move to a better view. And I only had my iphone with me. And my view was through the screen door. So. sorry for the low quality picture, but this was memorable, so at least this proves that it happened!

A Pileated Woodpecker
I quickly called Mrs. F.G. so she got to see it too, but it flew away almost immediately. Oh for my other camera, looking out a different window!
In other news I've just got off the phone and laptop with a nice young lady at the library in Thornbury, trying to record my presentation on waterfalls using Zoom. But she could not get the audio feed working. We tried everything we could think of with no luck, so we've rescheduled for next week. Otherwise another quiet day inside.
