I'm sure that green woodpeckers nest here as I am far more likely to hear them call than to see them. When I do get a look they are usually tapping industriously at the bark on an apple tree, conveniently right in front of the window. Today I had the unusual sight of a green woodpecker on the grass pecking at the fallen apples. (Sorry, I cheated rather in my post a while back about not feeding birds.) I'd never seen this before so I wondered if the bird were injured but no, it flew off quite blithely. Strange.
