    Good morning!
    Well it's snowing here, and rather heavily at that:eek:

    I'm still very sick; I actually don't remember a time when I felt so horrible. No meds seem to help for more than a couple of hours. This is day 6 of this cold.

    Yesterday I did go out briefly (only time out since last Wednesday). When I went out to feed the birds early morning, I discovered that the cold air actually made it easier to breathe! So I took myself for a drive to the edge of the city to find an Eastern Meadowlark. I did find two but neither were cooperative....what I really want is a shot of one on a nearby fencepost......that didn't happen:( After that, I stopped at a local pond where I figured there would not be too many photographers (or others) hanging out. I was really happy that I chose this place.....on my way out I saw movement and spotted two coyotes! I have been looking for coyotes forever! They were my nemesis just like both the Belted Kingfisher and the Pileated Woodpecker once were.....now I see them all the time so I'm sure I'll start seeing coyotes more often now:D

    Today's photos are of our male Pileated Woodpecker (that continues to dig his holes creating a nest for his loved one), a Red-Winged Blackbird, a male and female Wood Duck, and last but not least the two coyotes I saw yesterday.

    Thanks for looking! :bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug:

    As always ,Great photos! Thank You :)
    We had coyotes here but the Village has quietly got rid of them. I love the animals & it makes me sad that people move here from the city & proceed to complain about any wild animal that wanders into their yard.
    They should live in a tall building on the top floor so the Animals can't "get to them" This area is surrounded by forest preserves,it's one of the reasons I moved here.

    Is that a hawk in one of the photos with the woodpecker?

    Thanks Dyana! Yes, a Cooper's Hawk decided to harass the Pileated...not the first time it's happened but probably won't be the last.

    Yeah, snow. There was actually a bit on the ground this morning :eek: and great big fat flakes of it coming down this morning. But it's gone now.

    Thank you for thinking of me Sonia!
    I am still feeling the affects of this darn cold! I believe my sinuses are infected and it's making my head ache and my whole face hurt. And I still have a wicked cough.
    But I've gone out for the last 3 mornings! One of the good things about photography is that I can do it alone, so I've been going to spots where I know I won't run into a bunch of people (photographers).
