Who do we have here, peeking out of her nest hole? Why, it’s a Red-bellied Woodpecker, which was seen with her mate during Newtown Historical Society’s Earth Day Bird Walk at Mount Olivet Cemetery. This species is becoming more common in our area and is often heard before it is seen. More photos from the tour, including papa woodpecker, appear below.
