Caption: I have been noticing the red-bellied woodpecker over in the woods daily. On Monday I decided to take a photo of the whole top of tree to show you all of the holes. They usually nest in same tree each year but make a new cavity each year.

It is funny - after taking the photo and all
some days I can't spot the tree over in the woods.
I looked for it yesterday and again
today and could not spot it. The red-bellied
woodpecker makes a lot of noise is how I have
spotted it before.

Well this is the tree that a different kind of woodpecker
is using the red-bellied woodpecker.
I kept seeing him there and was telling a
friend about all of the holes so posted photo
and researched the red-bellied woodpecker and
found that they return to the same tree each
year but make a new hole.

This is THE tree !Fascinating that they choose the same tree each year, but work and work really hard to make a new nesting hole - probably for hygenic reasons and assure their young ones a healthy start!
