Nests in natural cavities
I love baby woodpeckers!
We have a downy woodpecker chick in a nearby tree hollow. It has been rapid chirping during daylight hours – non-stop – for a week! It doesn’t even stop to take a breath when it is getting fed! Ready to get ear protectors. Have never heard anything like it!
