This seems to be my day to have natural history answers for you, John. You are in the range of the acorn woodpecker. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Acorn_Woodpecker/overview
Wow Doug, thanks so much! The bird creates great photo subjects. 😎
I am curesed with considerable trivia knowledge! Besides, I was the Vice President of Nebraska Ornithologists’ Union in the late 1980s and am a life member. I’ve never seen an acoprn woodpecker, but woodpeckers are among of my favorites.
Hmmmm……I wonder which came first: the holes (killed the tree) or the death of the tree (opening up the hole boring activity). Anyway, like Shelly above I like the B&W image best.
Looks like a woodpecker to me…as a novice. But, as an admirer of your photography – it was an excellent choice to run it in B&W too. All the textures look great in both color and B&W!
Thank you Shelley! I am not a birder so the Woodpecker idea works. The BW looks much better doesn’t it!
Yes – I agree!
I hope you guys get to have some wine on your deck today! Rain rain go away aye?
