    This has been a year of birding firsts for me, most recently a yellow-bellied sapsucker in our yard.

    Any tips for trees, shrubs, or other features that attract chickadees, nuthatches, and woodpeckers rather quickly?

    Hello folks! My question is pretty straightforward, I guess, and kind of speaks for itself. Nonetheless, I will go into more detail. Our backyard in New Hampshire has a fair abundance of black-capped chickadees, white-breasted nuthatches, downy woodpeckers, and hairy woodpeckers. Although I...

    The first one to show up for the day and the last one to leave the old food trough, one of a few Downy woodpeckers that frequent my yard.

    An amazing woodpecker is almost endangered!

    One of the most stunning woodpeckers that exist are going to soon be marked as endangered- unless we do something about it! We've already probably lost the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker due to habitat loss, and we can't have the same thing happen to the beautiful Red-Headed Woodpecker. It's my dream...

    I don't get to see these often and I'm so happy when I do. They make beautiful sounds and a course so pretty to look at.

    It's not often I find a woodpecker on the birdbath and this was early in the morning magnifying his colors even more. This breed is very colorful but if I ever could get the Pileated Woodpecker this close imagine how great that would be. Oh too, how I wish I had my Red-headed Woodpecker back...
