I walked out of my house and heard a tapping sound. I turned towards the only tree in my yard as I was going to cut across the yard to my car. Sitting in my tree, peck peck pecking away was a giant wood pecker. I had never seen one before, and I had no idea how big they were. I have since googled them, and they really don't look that big in pictures either. The one in my tree... big...huge... and scary. He wasn't afraid of me in the least. I inched closer and closer to him. trying to get a good picture. I only had my camera phone and he did not sit still. The pictures aren't great but you can get a general idea of his size.
After work I was wandering around Columbus waiting for the Women's Fund annual Key Holder to start and I discovered this.
I've lived in Columbus and worked downtown for nearly 8 years and had never seen or noticed it before. This makes me think I should wander around more often.
Have you had any good wanderings lately?
