Boo! It is the red-bellied woodpecker sticking his head out of the tree hole nest. This bird is easy to find by hearing him before seeing him. Once you know his signature sound, just follow the noise. He seems to enjoy making the noise in front of the hole as it throws the sound. Once you have birds coming to your feeder, I suggest you begin with a chair a distance away from the feeders and move it closer daily. The birds will adapt to you sitting there while they eat. Begin to use your camera and take many pics. This will let them get used to the camera. Soon, they will begin to show off for you! The birds who choose to come to your feeder, will already be comfortable with humans around. They are very smart and are watching you long before you see them! Below are more Springy Thingys. Enjoy!
