Last Fall as the leaves were turning colors this woodpecker lit upon our back deck. I grabbed my camera and took these two pictures of what I believe is a female Northern Flicker. (I Googled it.)
In January as I was walking up the sidewalk to our home and neared this Aspen tree I heard a distinct pecking sound coming from inside. It was then I noticed some rather obtrusive holes in its trunk. Was this where she was nesting for the Winter??!!
Last week (now May) as I was leaving to pick Travis up from Timpview I was SO excited to discover TWO little woodpeckers flitting around the hole in that same Aspen tree. The mama was no where to be seen, but these two made me feel giddy, happy, awed, and hopeful that they would stick around a while.
