I was driving home from Jasper Arkansas, on Tuesday, prior to the cold and rain, and I spotted a male Pileated Woodpecker determined to drill into the bark of a tree. There must have been ants or termites in the tree. He was so busy, I stopped the car up next to the tree and took a dozen shots with a Canon 7D and a Canon EF300L IS f/2.8 Lens.

I am so glad it’s been a rainy and foggy spell here. Last year, at this time, I couldn’t even get a shovel in the ground. I got about 0.65 of rain over a period of 2 full days and all the vegetation looks really good. The fog was thick, close to dense,  this Friday morning at dawn and actually took 2-3 hours to burn off. Drove in to Jasper to run errands this morning; got breakfast at the Ozark Cafe, and then the grocery store, farm store, bank, and gas station. On the way home I got a photo if a Eastern Kingbird looking directly at me (obviously, this is just prior to his departure):
