TDH Updates: October 2015 – Artists Eric Davis and Chung Park

Artist Chung Park

The outdoor gallery continues to grow.  These two new works help tie in different corners of the property and add to the overall aesthetic of the house.  They complement the natural surroundings better than I could have imagined.  The pictures don’t really do them justice!

White-backed Woodpecker

These little guys love the surrounding bamboo.  My limited research tells me they are White-backed Woodpeckers (the local birding facebook page seems to agree).  They’re gorgeous birds.  

I hear them almost daily and have been trying ALL SUMMER to get a decent photo.  The odds have been stacked against me.  They’re not only fast birds, and bounce from tree to tree, but the bamboo forests around the house are thick.  And I’m using a camera phone.  I miss the days of early summer when that Ruddy Kingfisher was hanging around…he was much more willing to photographed!
