When we were out for our walk yesterday, my person and I came upon a woodpecker. It was pecking away on the trunk of a tree right next to the road. It was very friendly and didn't seem to mind at all when we stopped to watch it for a while. I really enjoyed the loud tap tap tapping noise it made. Of course the reason it was tapping away like that was because it was looking for insects to eat. That part doesn't sound so enjoyable to me. Although my food repertoire is quite broad, I don't think I need to add insects to it. Give me a sunflower seed any day. What I really admired about the woodpecker was its feet, very similar to mine, with two toes facing forwards and two facing backwards. With those feet, it could climb straight up the tree trunk the way I climb up my person's leg. A very talented bird. I hope we meet up again someday when I'm out for another walk.
