Who's been chewing on my porch? I suspected it was a woodpecker ... or maybe a stucco-pecker,
since it was ignoring the wooden beam in favor of the wall.
I haven't been able to catch it in the act until this week.
Me: Wait a minute...don't I know you?
This guy showed up a few years back and you all identified him as a Flicker. The Audobon guide
states that the Flicker "...eats ants more frequently than any other North American bird."
Good bird to have around, I thought. I named him Woody.
Maybe this one is Woody's girlfriend.
Maybe they have plans to raise a family in the empty swallows' nest.
Maybe I should chase her away while I can.
I told her she can eat all the ants she wants but the house is off limits.
