Arrival of the red headed woodpecker,April 28th,2009

April 28th,2009 the red headed woodpecker arrived at my back feeder. This is the earliest it has arrived as yet. About 4 days early. Male arrives first then the female usually a week or so later. However this year she arrived the very next day. A first since 200o. l have had them here almost every year. They missed 3. But one was seen in the area one of those years,coming out of a wooded area in a local marina. 2001 they had 3 wee ones and all other years 2. This year they had 3 successful little ones.
