This woodpecker likes to carve on the tree in my front yard!!!! I only see him once in a while and never have a camera other than my phone with me, of course!

All C&C welcome. Thanks.

Oh, my! What a talented woodpecker! ;). A fun creation-did the woodpecker, perhaps, get some help from you with the carving? Wonderful!

Very clever, Joe. Curious why the woodpecker is carving an owl? :wink: The matt and frame are a plus. Nice work!

I thought you might believe me, but I guess not! I am guilty as charged. He did add finishing touches to the brow, breast and tuft, though. Notice the gouges. This was done on a tree that died, but I left the trunk standing to carve an eagle on it. The eagle faces the street in front of the house and all I could see was the dead trunk from my porch when I drank my coffee all summer. I decided to carve the owls to give me a better view on my side and the woodpecker decided he wanted to add his touch to it. Here is the other side:

I'm glad he hasn't decided to help me with this side yet!   :lol:

Thanks to you all for your comments.

Beautiful work, Joe! So many talents. I think it is an honor to get help from a bird. :)
