There was a bit of excitement in our front yard this afternoon. All at the same time, we saw a Red-bellied Woodpecker, a downy and a hairy, a Common Grackle and a flock of goldfinches.. The goldfinches have stayed around our feeder all winter..a first here. A couple of months ago I was astonished to see a young White-tailed Deer on our driveway! Lots of wildlife in this neck of the city.
