Woodpeckers like our pears. This is an immature woodpecker on the pears after taking lessons from one of it's parents.Thanks Gail at http://clayandlimestone.blogspot.com for the ID on the vine, it is Melothria pendula or creeping cucumber and the ID on the Bagworm Cocoon, don't think I want either one in my gardens!
I have also have watching this vine, haven't a clue how it got here, which happens a lot in my gardens. The bloom is this tiny yellow flower.
Today I am Thankful for the wonderful things nature allows me to see.
