Silly Sunday: The sad story of Albert Acorn

By IamDora
(I walked up the mountain instead of down this week and found these acorn woodpeckers preparing a nest.)

In the opening scene Albert Acorn is busy adding a new addition to his high-rise apartment.
V1 – he sings while he works. Angela Acorn has become his new bride and tonight's the night.
V2 – Angela is busy cleaning house and getting ready for her pending motherhood.

FAST FORWARD SEVERAL YEARS

V3 – Alicia Acorn is now a teenager but Albert seldom sees her.
V4 – Because he's living on top of a telephone pole, having lost everything in the divorce.
The End

Well that's a sad ending Dora. Your going to have to find Albert a new lady to brighten his life and get him off the telephone pole. A very well captured set.

Actually I saw him today at the top of the dead tree on my second walk, and there was another bird a limb over so maybe ....

Terrific set Dora. I saw Acorn Woodpeckers near Medellín but didn't get shots anything like as good as these.

A fabulous set, Dora - the lead image, showing the extent of the 'excavation' inside the tree is quite amazing!

Poor Albert but he is probably quite fickle and will find another lady friend!

A lovely set of images and a great narrative. You need to write a travel book Dora!

They're everywhere here but I got lucky; walked up to a coffee field looking for a view and saw a flash of yellow in a hole way up an old tree. There was one cleaning out an old hole and the other guy making or enlarging another one. The juvenile and the guy on the pole I got the same day at different locations. They had to go together.
