Debbie was watering the plants on the front porch when she heard a tapping sound. She looked up and spotted the source: a ladder-backed woodpecker working its way up the trunk of our neighbors' red oak tree. We don't see many woodpeckers around here, so it was definitely a photo opportunity.

In the second photo, you can easily see the pockmarks the bird was leaving in the tree bark.

We have one of those...he likes the beam trellis on our deck. Dingaling. :)

Our outdoor archery range has two 50 gallon drums for trash. One morning I heard brrrnnngggg, brrrnnngggg, brrrnnngggg -- it took me a minute to locate the source. A woodpecker was sitting on a trash barrel jack hammering away at the rim. Must of had an iror deficiency - ha.

IRON, not iror!
