Happy Friday! The leaves are changing and the weather is getting chillier here in Capital Region of New York. This female Hairy Woodpecker was pecking at the wood knots in my deck. There must be little insects of some sort living in there.
Here is a shot of her working on one of the knots.
Yes, you got caught! I have seen a lot more woodpecker activity lately. Pileated Woodpeckers, Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Downy Woodpeckers, and of course the Hairy Woodpeckers are all active in my yard. Have a great weekend and enjoy the fall colors!
