We have a great pair of Downy Woodpeckers nesting in the yard. They are really fun to have around because they have gotten to know us and tolerate our presence. We can enjoy the yard, take care of the landscaping and not have to worry about pressuring them.
Both the male and female have taken an active part in prepping the hole. We’ve been watching it from the start. Over Memorial Day Weekend, they really went to town.
