When I lived in San Diego I used to see tons of them now I am lucky if I have more than one pair visiting my feeder. I live in a forest but have never seen a wood pecker at my feeder. I do love observing piliated woodpeckers ...they are magnificent birds!!
Those woodpeckers...they might wanna party too.oke:
Looks like the woodies we have around here, they're always at my feeder, they love the black oil seed, as do the cardinals.
In the summer when the bee balm is blooming I have to be very cousicous when in the area...you see when the hummingbirds are jousting...it gets dangerous. I'm happy they have fast reflexes or lets just say I would be waring an eye patch nowadays.
