Not sure if he is the same shy woodpecker that we are used to seeing..This guy acted more self assured...He .kept raising his head feathers as though trying to make himself look important to the other birds on the feeder. .I shot this picture through the window with my camera on a tripod just before he left the feeder and his head feathers were still raised high. He may have been a visiting woodpecker attempting to show his authority to impress the other birds that he was the new bird on the block....Or maybe he'd heard tomorrow is the first day of spring and he was feeling good about it.
