I remember when the redheaded woodpeckers were quite common in my area of southern MN. Now it is rare for me to see one. The last couple days I have been watching one on one of my apple trees, pecking at the stump and at some of the windfall apples.

I was trying to remember who had mentioned they'd seen a juvenile red-headed. There was one at our place yesterday in the drizzle, picking up sunflower seeds under the feeder. There has been an occasional adult off and on at the feeders this year and usually some on the oaks at the neighbor's where we pasture some ewes. Seems like we're seeing red-headed's more frequently. Don't know if it's due to the incidence of oak wilt, more old trees dying off in general or none of the above.
