Red-headed Woodpecker showed up finally around 10 and stayed around
off and on til last seen around 4:30.  Five other people got to see
it today. Thanks for not giving up on him/her. It seems to be more
active after 2 P.M. Today it was seen eating peanuts, suet and
white millet on the ground near back feeder. Before lunch it seemed
to be find his cache and eating leftovers from yesterday.

Red-headed Woodpecker is finally making regular visits to peanut feeder
since 10:A.M. lst 5-10 minute intervals but now every 2-3 minutes.  Had
a red Shoulder Hawk earlier this morning that got some kind of mammal.
Got a piece of the foot that we found so don't exactly know what it was.
That might have kept the Red-headed away.
