Wings of Winter - Part 5

The juncos are still hanging out in my juniper bushes and snacking on sunflower hearts that sit in the feeder trays or fall to the ground, but they also occasionally hit the peanut butter feeders.  

A male pileated woodpecker came in to enjoy a little peanut butter. Oddly, he chose the smaller of the two logs, rather than the one that would have given him a better place to balance with his tail.  

He's so beautifully bold against the snowy background.  His red crest almost vibrates with color!

Speaking of red, his poor, cold cardinal snuggled into the leeward side of one of my blue spruce trees.  The wind was howling and he was trying to get as much windbreak as he could!
