Winter Woodpecker

woodpecker_pinetreeA Woodpecker sounds like an unlikely sighting in the city, considering the hazard of pecking buildings and street lights. But a small Woodpecker – a ‘Downy Woodpecker’ is our guess – was spotted in the back yard; and based on the pattern of holes running up the truck of the Pine tree, its been a long time visitor. It’s not an Ivory Billed in the Bayou, but a novelty nonetheless, in the city.
