Downy Woodpecker

Look what I found in the neighbor's yard...a female downy woodpecker making a nest-hole.  Maybe she's the mate of the male I saw on the 22nd...

Very cool. I have a red-bellied woodpecker that's been visiting my feeders lately. He likes to peck utility poles. Must be some good bugs.

These are so cute. We've had a couple now and then here.
Mostly we have Golden-Front woodpeckers.
They made some holes for nests last year. Starlings took them over...bullies!
