For the second time in 20 years, we had a brief visit from an adult RH woodpecker this morning. The first time, which was at least 15 yrs ago, one stopped in for a quick bite at our sunflower seed feeder in early spring. This morning's bird snacked on ripe cherries. (The tree has small sweet cherries that draw a multitude of birds for a week or ten days each spring, including lots of woodpeckers.) Since at least this past Friday, red-bellied woodpeckers and downy woodpeckers have been flying into the tree with fledglings and feeding them, but the RH woodpecker was unaccompanied by young.
