Lunch Time!

Lunch Time!

After 16 years and bugs got into it, our birch tree died.


"Woody" the Hairy Woodpecker loves it and comes frequently for lunch.

Beautiful picture, Marinus!

Thank you - this is a wonderful picture of a Woodpecker!

Yes, that is the little Downy Woodpecker, it is a male and the female doesn't have the red spot on top.
