Susan,abt the woodpeckers...
I meant to post back sooner,but got distracted!
I use cracked corn from the feed store,and put it
Out on a line in a pile on top of my platform feeder.
I put out 3 to four cups, and skip a day or two
Until the birds clear it up.
The woodpeckers who come are from a allied family
Of Red Bellied woodpeckers who cavity nest nearby.
Yesterday I saw a hummingbird hen picking soft dried
Nesting lining from a old cattail head in my Dragonfly
Pond.She was so cute!
Happy Spring and Regards!
