We have a woodpecker! 

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!
