Out of the corner of my eye, I happened to see the flash of white on wings. Tracking the bird to a tree, I saw it stash an acorn in a tiny acorn-sized hole. I walked around the tree looking it up and down. The whole tree was a pantry full of carefully stored food. Acorn Woodpeckers do the darnest thing. I have seen them in both California and Arizona. They are easy to see not only in trees but also drilling in telephone poles along the highway. I love that.
My favorite woodpecker actually is the Pileated. What’s yours?
