I often see them pecking at power poles, both wood and sometimes steel. I thought that it was a bit weird like they didn't know any better. Now, I know from information read here and some other sites that they are communicating to other woodpeckers. I did not know that before and thought maybe something was wrong. Now instead I will keep an eye out for others that are maybe being called to my yard. There may be a nest in the yard because I have a very old jacqueranda tree with numerous holes in it from other birds and critters. I even saw an eastern screech owl one night.

In my small space I have a multitude of flora and fauna for many birds and other animals to eat. More photos of my yard and garden space can be seen on Flickr at....http://www.flickr.com/photos/80166300@N02/
I do have two small feeders for the little wrens or sparrows or whatever they are. They are too fast and shy for me to get a decent photo of them.
Egrets also visit very frequently as I live close to the water, (intercoastal waterway) of the Gulf of Mexico.
I should post them under another entry for those birds.
More to come. I like this site.
