PIC OF THE WEEK: 04/25/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes: One of the joys of this little six inch member of the woodpecker family is its abundance. Perhaps because it has adapted well to the changing conditions of its environment. Its range covers most of North America, except for the extreme southwest and the far northern reaches of Canada and Alaska. It is a common bird in deciduous woodlands, but also exists in suburban neighborhoods and city parks. It is typically on of the earlier species to fins a newly hung suet feeder as well. The males and females are differentiated by the small red mark on the back of the head (male) or lack there of (female). They can often be located just by following the gentle Morse Code-like tappings on small dead tree branches as they forage for insects and grubs. One of the greatest challenges that all of our Woodpeckers face is loss of nesting sites. Weather by aggression and competition by European Starlings or from the prolific removal of dead trees and branches by man. Newer tree trimming practices can help, where outreaching dead branches are trimmed back and the main trunk is only shortened. This allows cavity nesting birds a place to excavate nest holes and resolves safety issues from potential falling debris. This seems like a smart practice for all involved.
