Although the calendar says Spring is still weeks away, a Red-Bellied Woodpecker woke me up this morning. The steady pecking lasts about 7 seconds each time in the distance. We believe the same Red-Bellied Woodpecker comes back to our garden every year! One year, he pecked a hole in our deck railing. We had to cover the hole with a pot to keep him from pecking. Surprisingly, he is a large bird, about 9 inches long and 6 – 7 inches tall. Don’t you just love Spring?!

The following video is from MyBackyardBirding channel, and shows a Red-Bellied Woodpecker pecking and inspecting a nest box.
