Another New Bird

Added another new bird to the backyard feeder list, a Gila Woodpecker, Melanerpes uropygialis.  This is a male; he has a bright red patch on top of his head that is barely visible in the photo.

I also planted Iceland Poppy (Papaver nudicaule) seeds saved from last year in one of the window boxes and we'll see soon enough if they are going to sprout.  I hope they do, as the window box is outside of the room that I'm converting into my home office and they'll give me something pretty to look at.
