Do you hear laughing?
Hey look! It’s Woody Woodpecker in my pecan tree. These fellas are hard to spot nowadays…least around here they are. Oh, we have plenty of the smaller varieties (regular woodpeckers), but these ‘giant’ ones ya just don’t see everyday. And I was very pleased to see him pecking away at my tree the other morning. It seems this species lives in old growth pine trees. The large forest of them across the street from us got pummeled during the hurricane and I was afraid that he and his mate had disappeared for good. I was happy to be proven wrong. You can always tell when he’s around because it sounds like someone is taking a jackhammer to a tree.
And while Woody was busy pecking holes in the side of my tree, this slick guy was up top stealing pecans.
I think these two guys were in cohoots together………….
