This fellow came regularly to my feeder from fall 2012 to late summer 2013. He alternated with a female (presumably his mate) – I never saw them come together. Then in the fall of 2013, both disappeared. I did not see another woodpecker at my feeder until late summer of this year. Now a pair are coming again!
