I love having woodpeckers come to our bird feeder, though it's rare. We gets all sorts of other birds, but somehow this guy—I think it's a red-bellied, but please correct me if I'm wrong—never fails to thrill me. I think it is an excitement that has carried over from my childhood. We had a bird feeder right outside our kitchen window, and I can remember my mother calling us in excitedly. "It's a woodpecker!"
