ya, they do that. We have two pair that come into our yard
all year long. They are great to watch and they have gotten
to know me and they will talk to you if you walk into
Whoever guessed it was a pileated woodpecker pulling my old
stump apart was
right on the money. I thought it was too much work for a
bird but today I
surprised the little (not so little) devil. He flew to
another tree 50'
away to see if I was going to stay or leave - and then back
to another tree
20' on the other side of the stump. Went on the far side of
that tree and
peeked around to check me out.
