Naughty Pileated Woodpecker

The 5/8 Bees don’t actually do damage, but the hungry Pileated Woodpecker, hunting for tasty tidbits, does. I caught this one pecking on the fascia boards. When he noticed me, he flew away, but I could hear him again, from inside the house, a few minutes later. The fascia board is 2″X 8″ so you can tell the size of this Woodpecker. He is small for his species, so is perhaps young or a she.    ⓒ Bearspawprint 2014

          • Simple Simon went a hunting
            For to catch a Dickie Bird.
            He thought he could not fail,
            For he had got a little salt,
            To put upon it’s tail.

            Going to the fair;
            Said Simple Simon to the Pieman,
            “Let me taste your ware.”

            Said the Pieman to Simple Simon,
            “Show me first your penny.”
            Said Simple Simon to the Pieman,
            “Indeed I have not any.”

            Simple Simon went a hunting,
            He thought he could not fail,
            For to catch a Dickie Bird,
            For he’d got a little salt to put upon his tail.

            Simple Simon went to ride upon
            A spotted cow, that had a little calf;
            She threw him down upon the ground,
            Which made the people laugh.

            Simple Simon went to look
            If plums grew upon a thistle.
            He pricked his fingers very much,
            Which made poor Simon whistle.

            Simple Simon went a-fishing,
            For to catch a whale;
            But All the water he had got,
            Was in his mother’s pail.

            He went for water in a sieve,
            But soon it all ran through,
            And now poor Simple Simon
            Bids you all adieu.

            🙂 🙂

            Oh? Wow! I have never heard anything but the fist verse I thought that was it. You have enlightened me
            I stand corrected.
