Me and Pickle the cat are very lucky because we have a huge garden with lots of trees and stuff. Usually the woodpeckers are down the garden pecking holes in the trees but this year they’ve made a nest in a tree just behind the garage.
Okay, first things first. Go get your glasses if you don’t have good eyesight! Or if you have a big camera with one of those zoom lenses and want to come and take proper pictures, just pop on by.
Anyway, this video shows you their nest and you can see mum and dad getting a bit flustered flying around in the background. They don’t seem to mind us in the garden but if we go near the nest we have to hide and they’ve got beady eyes and know we’re there.
And this next one isn’t as close but you can see mum, or maybe dad, going to feed the wee head banging babies. Hopefully the first video has given you a clue as to where you’re supposed to be looking!
Noisy little peckers aren’t they!
