This bird visits my house almost every year. I, sadly, do not know what it's called, if anyone can identify it, I would very much appreciate that comment.

Okay, so my Dad says it's a woodpecker; seems plausible, what do you think?

I know completely what you mean by wholesome. Ah, (wiping a tear from my eye) I love those spiritual and inspirational and musical and wise beings that we have deemed 'birds.'

It's so funny how everyone thinks it's remarkable that I was able to photograph this one :)

It is beautiful, I agree whole-heartedly.

The bird seems very wholesome to me, almost domestic and maternal, you know what I mean?

I haven't noticed it this year, but I can never remember what time of year it comes around, and I haven't been outside much.

It would, I guess, that's a great idea :) The one problem is, I really just write my poetry on inspiration. I'll keep that in mind, though :)

I admire your being able to take a picture of a bird. They always fly away when I try, blurring the image. It's really quite a beautiful one (sadly, I don't know what kind). It visits your house every year? That would make a good poem topic.

I'm glad you think so highly of it! Sadly, the magazine does not have your opinion :(

Thank you!

I love this, it's really a great photograph. Think it deserves to be in the magazine.

Thank you!! He was actually way up on the point of my roof, so I don't think he ever even noticed me :)

This little guy was actually up on my roof :) We have a two story house, so he didn't ever even notice me. I'm quite surprised my camera even zoomed in that far :)

Wow! I wish I could take photographs of birds like this without having them fly away first.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

I really like the composition of this.  The worm's eye view of the bird on the roof top, and how only the blue sky is in the background.
