Now I know why there are bits of bark missing on this Rain Forest Pansy tree....... A pair of Greater Spotted Woodpeckers feed on the peanut bird feeders and they nest somewhere in the woods nearby. This week I saw one of them pecking away at the bark of this young tree , which has beautiful, deep maroon- red, heart shaped leaves in the summer. I shall have to find a tree trunk guard when I next go into town, and I must keep the peanut feeder filled up!
Just in time. -
