A couple weeks ago I posted about a red-bellied woodpecker that I saw in a cavity down the road from my house. Well, it's been there every single morning Toby and I have gone out for our walk. This morning I made a point of bringing my camera and the big lens. I should've brought the tripod along as well, for I have a hard time holding the camera steady with that lens, but all things considered, these didn't come out too badly.
As you can see, he has some "stuff" in his beak. It could be that he is excavating the hole - he's got stuff he's spitting out almost every time I see him. But, as speculated before, it could be he's just roosting in this cavity - they do that.
And here you can see both the upper story door as well as the lower story door. Is this indeed a duplex, or are there two holes into the same cavity? Without a Treetop Peeper (camera on a pole), a ladder or climbing spikes, I will never know the answer.
