There have been a lot of nights that we will be out on the deck and we hear a woodpecker loud and clear, but we can't find it any where. The other day while I was opening the door to get some fresh air in the house I saw him.
I believe that he is a Northern Flicker.
He didn't stay around long, but I did get a couple pictures.
Now I know why we can't find him when we hear him. He must blend right into the trees.
