Subject: Whalley Rd. woodpecker
Recently, Rodney Olsen saw a Red-bellied Woodpecker on a feeder at the jct.
of Whalley and Lake Rd. in Charlotte. I can't answer his question (Are they
uncommon winter birds?) - but in March '02 I spent quite a long time
watching a red-bellied woodpecker apparently excavating a nest hole right
beside the apple orchard at the right-angle bend in Whalley Road.

There is only one confirmed nesting ever of Red-bellied in Vermont - in
Brattleboro a couple of years ago; so any evidence of additional nesting is
significant. I predict with the new Atlas Project getting underway this
year, there will be others.
