When I got out of my car today, I heard something in the tree above me. I’d heard it before, and had looked for the source of the sound, but had seen nothing. I had even commented “there’s something going on in that tree.” Today I saw it. The chirping was mixed with a familiar tapping sound. This little woodpecker was on the half-dead birch tree between my house and the caboose. It was unphased by my presence, and it let me take several pictures as it found something good to eat under the bark.
