March 23, 2018

Location: Fellsmere, St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park

This is the hole of a woodpecker
It's a natural cavity.
A woodpecker, probably Red-bellied,
Made it so he'd have a place to breed.

Well, technically the Red-bellied Woodpecker
Enlarged a Red-cockaded's hole,
In an attempt to take over this tree
And make it his new home.
