Two Rhode Island transplants have settled here in Northwest Florida on Escambia Bay. In Rhode Island, we spent most of our summers and fall days sailing the waters of Narragansett Bay, Block Island Sound and Buzzards Bay. We are so delighted to have found another Bay to enjoy.

“Even the woodpecker owes his success to the fact that he uses his head and keeps pecking away until he finishes the job he starts”~Coleman Cox
Not the greatest pictures, but this red-headed woodpecker is a regular visitor to our front yard. We've almost become friends, but it still flies away as soon as it spots me. Today he stuck around just long enough to take a few very quick snaps.
Must be my day for spotting birds. This brown Pelican had no problems with my approaching him. In fact he almost posed!
