Mr Downy came by for a visit this morning during devotions. The rat a tat tat on this branch was his way of saying hello..
This woodpecker is a frequent visitor to our area. His ancestors decided to bore a hole in our shed years ago. I chased them off by throwing sticks at him. But even with this, I am happy to see any bird that comes by. The oldest recorded male was 11 years old.
Feeding woodpeckers don't make that much noise. They don't have a song so they use the rat a tat tat as their song.
I give thanks to the Lord for what He has done for me. I enjoy what He is doing now and I trust in Him for the future.
Psalm 150:1 "Praise the LORD! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty expanse."
