And again, my daughter needs to clean her horse stalls.... these are hair-like.
My daughter needs to clean the horse stall....
Pinkie-sized (but shorter).
40ish feet tall. The whitish barked trunk in the middle, and the uneven evergreen top.
Just the hole they make.... all over our back yard.
horribly blurred cell phone pic
Unfortunate roadkill..... I don't usually see these on the road.
One of two 1/2 mile apart.
Oddly, one of two only 1/2 mile apart.
This coot was sitting in the road in the opposite lane I was traveling in. I stopped, turned my vehicle around and managed to entice it to move out of the roadway (it was still dark that morning, and the fowl could not be easily seen).
I assume it was injured or sick, and managed to scoot away quickly when I approached it, but it was not inclined to move at all until I was close.
There was no blood on the road under it, nor did there appear to be any fishing line attached to it when it scurried away. It was nowhere to be seen in the area later that evening, so I am hoping it survived.
This was on a doorpost two days in a row with mild temps. for Jan.
Approx. 3 to 4 cm long.

They are feeding on a carcass of a deer that had been hit by a vehicle.
Notice clothespin on left for sizing.
My seven-year-old calls this a "bounty hunter" woodpecker.
This is not what I saw, but closest I could find.
This is growing in grass.
Just a guess on the ID
Sorry for pic quality... lame phone.
4" to 5" in diameter.
Sorry. Awful picture quality.
