I was outside feeding the chickens on Monday morning when I heard something knocking, knocking, knocking in the woods behind the coop. I snuck around the side, listening.
It took me a few minutes, but I found him! I only had the cellphone with me so the picture isn’t super clear when I zoom in, but if you look closely, you’ll see him! He’s got a red head, and he noticed me, too. He wasn’t afraid of me at all. He watched me for a few minutes, and then he went right back to work on the tree.
Now that I know what to listen for, I hear him all the time out there, knocking, knocking, knocking, and finding some bugs to eat! I love living out here with nature so close by us. I can’t imagine living anywhere else!
