Now I lay me down to sleep..

Now I lay me down to sleep..
Or hang on for a nap, which ever works for you.

This is a young red-bellied woodpecker who has its head tucked back under its wing.

Shades of the headless horseman.

We watched it hop around on the ground, do a short flight and then climb an old willow tree in the yard.
We didn't see or hear an adult so it may have been on its own.

We put some suet in the bark in hopes it would find it and have a meal.
We heard adult red-bellied woodpeckers in the yard this morning and we didn't see the young bird in the willow, although it is a big tree.
From the sounds this morning it was reunited with the adults.

Alls well that ends well.
