This is a photo from several years ago....
When we moved here in 2008-09,
we were thrilled with the number and
variety of birds..I had never seen
a Red-Headed Woodpecker.
They would visit our feeder for a
few months starting in May during
their breeding season and even brought
their offspring as seen here
without the red head....
then in 2011, we were hit with
tornadoes in our area on April
27th...many of the taller
trees on the street behind us were
lost....we didn't see the bird that
year or any year since....
Then a couple of weeks ago, I spotted
an adult at our feeder and was so
excited....I count this a blessing
from God..they come to the
feeder early in the morning and
in the evening every day, sometimes
at mid-day, also...I'm hoping
they will soon bring a baby...
