Woodpeckers, Sapsuckers and Nuthatches, Oh My!

We have kept several dead trees around the Goochland yard to attract more interesting birds. This has been a VERY successful endeavor, and I have gotten fleeting glances of at least three different kinds of Woodpeckers, and a few little Nuthatches recently. The Sapsuckers have also arrived and are drilling holes around all the Maple trees (much to my irritation, but what can you do). There are even a pair of woodpeckers nesting in a tree in the back yard; I have been enjoying hearing them making their home for the past week. They are all starting to get used to me, and I have loved watching them go about their day...
