Wilma and Woody


Hi, I’m Woody. Not like Woody Woodpecker. Woody, like short for Woodrow.

Have you heard the news? There’s a big food fest at Anneli’s.

This old stump has been here at least twenty years. I bet there are some well-established bugs inside.

Oof! Wa-a-a-ay inside.

Okay. There’s got to be an easier way.

Maybe I’ll check on Wilma and see if she’s found anything that’s easier to get to.


Woodrow, Woodrow,

Checks the wood growth,

Looking for some bugs.

Sticks his beak in,

Bugs he’s findin’,

Spears them and he tugs.



They’re elusive,

Not conducive,

To a snacky lunch.

Wilma beckons,

Food, he reckons,

Least that is his hunch.



Tried the stump here,

Bugs have no fear,

He can’t reach that far.

Wilma eats well,

That he can tell,

Finds more food by far.



Woody sweet talks,

Wilma just gawks,

Gives up her good spot.

This is great stuff,

Searching’s not tough,

Wilma, thanks a lot.

  10. We have Woodrow’s cousins here in New England. Yup, they get around. Early in the morning when I’m rocking on the front porch Woodrow the III pecks at a nearby tree trunk. When he gives up, he swings over to our suet feeder, where it’s a lot less work! Then Mrs. Woodrow III brings their little one over and I watch her feed Baby W. mouth to mouth. Really sweet. xo
    RE. your bird/nature/animal poems. I’ve decided that not only must you publish them in a book (with your photos), they’d be great for children AND adults to appreciate the birds and animals all around us. ❤
