I swear, I am not making this up: today I saw a woodpecker at the finch feeder in our front yard. It’s a tube feeder with a cage around it (so squirrels can’t get at it); we load it with finch food and thistle, and mostly get finches and sparrows, and towhees that come and feed on the stuff that fall on the ground. (No suet, no nuts, nothing I would have thought would interest a woodpecker). But today, I rounded the corner of the house and saw a woodpecker hanging onto the cage; it immediately flew away. I confess that I’m not exactly sure what it was — perhaps the nutall’s that has visited recently. But what the hell was it doing, hanging onto our feeder full of seeds and thistle? Perhaps peering at the holes, thinking they look like holes in a tree branch that might have grubs in ‘em? Has anybody seen this before?
