Two Woodpeckers and a Groundhog

On my way to the Monocacy National Battlefield I passed a Groundhog that was eating on the side of the road.  It quickly ran to its' den but paused long enough for me to get a photo before entering...


At the battlefield there were a number of Northern Flickers foraging on the ground for insects...



After a few minutes I was surprised to see a Pileated Woodpecker join the group...



Both of these birds are normally shy and difficult to photograph.  I was thankful when they allowed me to take these photographs.

Thanks for visiting, stay well, and stop back soon.
