He's a spectacular big fellow and his red head tuff rises as he pecks into a trunk. A yellow streak outlines the red and black surrounding his eyes. My bird book shows that we live at the western most edge of his territories (which are mostly in the eastern half of the United States.) Because of his size, the holes he excavates are large and are sometimes used by other birds seeking refuge.
He flew away. I hope he comes back!
