When we lived in Liberty, to the north of pineview dam, we had a resident woodpecker. It scared me to death for a long time. When we moved I knew that I would miss him. Not for long, I think he followed me here. The first time I heard something banging on my roof this time I new immediately what it was, I grabbed my camera and ran to the deck. I missed him, he flew to the tree on the side of the house. I caught him there, I thought that was pretty good. The second time he started hammering, I was a lot quicker and quieter. I got him. All I can think of to call him is woody. If you have a better name, please share it with me!


  1. Hi Cindy, looks like you captured a pretty little dove in your second photo, and your woodpecker is called a Northern Flicker... maybe that will help you decide on a name for him, thanks for sharing! Julie

  2. hmmm Cindy, do you really think he followed you there? ;) I know cats can find people miles and miles away...maybe woodpeckers can too! He's a cutie though!
    everything vintage

  3. Incredible story, Cindy!! He is a cutie!! We have one living in a big Maple tree just outside our bedroom window. He is hard to see because of all the leaves, but you sure can hear him.

    I'd name your little guy Racketmaker!! ;-)
