I am no expert on birds, so I have no idea what kind of woodpeckers these are.

This morning, six of them were involved in a round of calls, tree pounding and flight as I was out enjoying my coffee. Just east of the cluster of dogwood trees I see out the front door. The marvel of their antics took my attention for quite a while.

I am assuming they are in the process of finding nests and starting families.

It hardly matters their purpose in my world, although I am sure it is of vast importance to woodpeckers. It was a pleasure to share in their noise. You can be sure,  I’ll be watching that old snaggy tree to see if some of them have moved in!
