A Friday morning walk in the woods is one of our favorite habits since we both retired. It is such a gift to have so many beautiful nature paths so accessible. This morning, we were back in Rock Creek Park, on a rather cold but bright and sunny morning. We walked about three miles. Throughout our hike, there was recurrent, fun, sprightly background music of woodpeckers at work - what was it about this morning that got them so busy? Try as we liked, we never saw a woodpecker, we simply heard them.

Here are a few more photos from this morning's fun:
How about a silly little poem to mark the day?
Woodpecker, woodpecker, where are you?
We hear you in the woods, but have no clue
Whack, thwack, peck, peck, that's what you do
