Our local Woodpecker returns

Usually quite early in the morning :) But he is beautiful and quite amazing to watch. The holes are chiselled so quickly that the noise he makes are more like electrical noises than you'd expect. For you ornithological types, he is a Downy Woodpecker, the smallest of the many types found in the US. They are super common and found nearly everywhere.

We can watch him at eye height from our bedroom window which, with all the mature trees now covered in Spring leaves, feels a little like living in a tree house.
