A Red Bellied Woodpecker – Home?!

April 15, 2020 Off By Forrest

This week I hear a noise at the corner of my house. It sounded like a woodpecker was knocking.  I could never find it. This is a red bellied woodpecker looking for a home. There are a lot of dead trees in the tree farm next door where I see them frequently. 

It turned out I have a couple of wrens who built a nest in the gutter. They made the knocking sound creating the perfect nest. 

The painting is 8×8, colored pencils and pan-pastels.  If interested let me know.
