It seems there is a time warp for we must go back to an earlier posting to see the Downy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers. You can read about them in my sixteenth installment of ‘A Bestiary . . . Tales from a Wildlife Garden’ over at Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens.

Applause for a series of great pictures! Both of these bird species are also nesting on my own property in the far-western end of the Florida panhandle, but I never can get photos with my old digital camera. They really like the longleaf pine, red cedar and tallow trees here and I deeply appreciate their tree-de-bugging habits 🙂
