Woodpecker's Tongue ~ Sedona ~ Kris/Alex/Jack ~ Sami On Table Rock ~ Marinated Salmon & Veggie Cakes

Good 42º clear sunny morning. Hit 83º yesterday.
Yesterday I learned something new. I never realized the tongue on a woodpecker was like on a hummingbird. It makes sense now. They peck a hole and search for insects to eat, using their long sticky tongue... which by the way is longer than their head. It wraps around the birds's brain....

Yesterday was do laundry day and go through all the mail I had collected over the last few days. Then I worked on 243 of the photos from Wildlife Safari.

Today is the birthday of my Italian son, Alex's daughter Sedona. HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY PRETTY GIRL!!
