As is the case each Spring, the birds are back in town. And this year it seems a lot more woodpeckers than usual have moved into our neighborhood. You can hear them pecking away from dawn to dusk every day. There’s been a lot of new construction in the area lately, and with it, a fair number of older trees are disappearing. So maybe the woodpecker population is not really larger this year…could be that they’ve just moved into different neighborhoods.
