Wild Thursday - Woodpecker Work


We have a lot of woodpeckers around. The dogs and I often hear them on our morning walks. We also see them around a lot. Lee and I were out exploring the yard, as the snow that was left was not deep and found some handy work at the base of a dead tree.

  2. That is very interesting. We've never seen woodpeckers working so low to the ground.

  3. Whenever we see woodpeckers, they're usually high up in a tree. We didn't know they might forage so close to the ground.

  5. Yikes! I'm sure that Woody is finding lots of bugs to eat but that tree is going to fall one day if he isn't careful!

  6. Dear Handsome Phod and Ojo's Cousin Lee,

    We have a woodpecker that announces Himself every morning by pecking on the metal on the lamp post outside our house. Our people are ready to shoot him down.

    Licks,

    We also have many woodpeckers. Some breed very close to our house. We get to see the babies!
    HuMom love their calls & gets super excited when she sits with the one at the feeder.
