l was getting a bit antsy on the lateness of the red headed coming back. When he showed up today around 11. Although new feathers have grown over the spot on his head. l could just notice that there is a wee scar there. Same guy from last year. Amazing. And another great surprise,his mate is with him.
So there has been a lot of calling and flitting about here all day with the two. And the nest cavity the red bellied woodpeckers built this spring. Well it is again being investigated by yet another bird pair. Red bellieds built it,Northern flickers checked it out and did a bit of renovating and now the red headed woodpeckers are checking it out. Will be interesting if this nest finally gets used.
