10/5  Orange backyard
On my sunflower chips feeder was a juvenile Red bellied woodpecker  but
half of its lower bill was missing. It managed to retrieve some seeds from  
the feeder, but I was wondering what its chances of continuing to be able 
to  feed were.  I have had 2 juvenile RB woodpeckers here regularly, and I  
don't know if this is one of them, and possibly had an accident.
