There was a common thread running through my pictures today-red!  I was on a quest to see if I could find the pileated woodpecker that’s been hanging around the Morton Arboretum.  Knowing that birds don’t always cooperate, and that this was my third attempt, I was determined to enjoy the walk regardless of what I saw or didn’t see.  Fortunately, I heard one and finally figured out where he was…so exciting!  He was alternately listening and drilling fairly high up in an old tree then flew to another tree before finally leaving the area.

Here are some other flashes of red that I saw…enjoy!
