The other morning I could hear a knocking sound out in the garden.
Almost sounded like someone knocking on your door.
I figured it was a Woodpecker and sure enough there it was pecking away
on a dead tree behind our shed.
This is a 'Downy Woodpecker'. I double-checked in our Eastern Birds book.
This fella was having a grand ole time poking inside a hole
and either eating insects or maybe clearing it out for a nest.
What ever the case, he was not distracted by my presence and kept on with his business.
This old tree has a number of holes in it. Hey, maybe this is a hotel of sorts,
for 'newly weds'! It's SPRING after all!!
