December activity on the Green trail
It was an active day on the Green trail today. On my way to check on a downed tree, I happened upon a flock of robins in a little grove of holly trees making much hustle and bustle. Then, a little further on I could hear a woodpecker hard at work on a tree nearby. I searched out this one. I am never completely sure of whether I have found a downy or a hairy woodpecker so I welcome those birders who can be definitive. I saw no markings on the white strip of the tail feathers so think it is a hairy. She was making her way around the tree, stopped at the hole and then popped halfway in.
