The woodpecker is on time every afternoon to check out the tree trunk with his loud raps on the bird house attached to the tree. Its rapping is so loud even our neighbors over the creek and through the trees can hear it. Even though the noise is loud, we are happy that it is gathering the noxious and dangerous bugs from the tree.
Today while the rapping was going on, two blue swallows were flying around their new home attached to another tree nearby. I have seen the swallows enter the selected bird house, possibly in the process of getting ready for nesting?. It won’t be quiet for them while the woodpecker is on its routine food source during the afternoon
