I took this photo after hearing some scratching on the side of my house. This little visitor was not happy that I did not put peanuts so they decided that they would just help themselves to the food I put out for the woodpecker. I took this photo with my Nikon CoolPix P100 in Cranberry Township, PA. Thank you for taking a look at it. Photo enhanced slightly in Corel Paint Shop Photo Pro X3 and also Picasa 3.
