Two red headed woodpeckers were seen outside our window this morning. They were flitting from the trees to the ground. Another bird seemed to be bothering them.
They were too quick for my camera. Perhaps another time. I e-mailed a shot I had taken in the mist earlier to my son in TN and he was happy to see that they were around. Are they becoming hard to find?

We have had several Redheaded Woodpeckers in our yard over the years. One likes to try to Drill a hole in the Metal Transformer box on our light pole. He hasn't succeeded yet! Not for lack of trying though! We'll hear him and say There's Woody!! LOL

This summer was the first time the Red-headeds came to our yard. We've had both adult and juveniles. What fun they have been, especially since we have been hearing that their numbers are declining. We do not have the dead trees they prefer nesting in, but we sure have food. They are enjoying the peanuts and suet.
It has been pretty funny watching them store peanuts on the TOP of the utility poles. I suppose it's a safe place, but one that could get a little wet when it rains.

I put out a bird feeder during the 2012 summer. Our guy can along shortly after, Black Sunflower Seeds. He is still with us. A beautiful bird. Ours don't peck, they use thier becks to get into trees. They wedge them into the tight places.
