Rita, I would say woodpecker,too. I am not sure exactly what kind, though. I do love your poem.
Hello Sandy. i am so grateful that you did drop by to help me recognize this beautiful bird. I went back to the same bare tree where I saw this bird. I saw many holes in the branches. And suddenly, he came and I took several good photos of him. This time, I saw him pecking the tree by his long bill. It is strange because this tree is on the main street near our nieghbourhood. I used to think that woodpeckers live only in the forest! I will post the new photos so that you can recognize him better. Thanks for your uplifting comment about my poem. I do learn about nature from your blog and this enriches my writings since traditional haiku is interested in nature which can teach us something meaningful about human nature.much love,Rita
