Woodpeckers Would Peck Wood

I have 2 Woodpeckers about to set up house on (or should I say in?) my old oak tree. I just can’t wait to have Woodpecker chicks chirping away in my front yard.

She just kept pecking away and as the hole got bigger, she stuffed it with some moss and actually brought seeds from the birdfeeder to the future nest.

There she is on the birdfeeder.

Back to the nest to dump her seed(s), to build up food supply.

As a child, I only knew woodpeckers in the cartoon form and their rat-tat-tat pecking sounds always made me laugh. Today, I sit silently on my porch and watch real life woodpeckers making that sound and it simply brings joy that such beautiful birds have found sanctuary & are about to set up their nest in the garden.

Yes, it seems like a whole “Life Cycle” has occurred. Maybe my fixation on Woody Woodpecker and his rat-tat-rat on tv was déjà vu.
