BLACK-BACKED WOODPECKER, MARQUETTE COUNTY, MICHIGAN, 20 JUNE 2019

www.flickr.com/photos/snow-shadow/albums/72157709722764062
THIS IS A SCARCE WOODPECKER IN MICHIGAN’S UPPER PENINSULA, RATHER THAN A TRUE RARITY. AT TIMES IT HAS A TRUSTING NATURE TOWARD HUMANS THOUGH IT SEEMS TO BE QUITE ELUSIVE WHEN ONE IS LOOKING FOR THEM. IT WAS THEIR “HOMEBODY” BEHAVIOUR THAT ALERTED ME TO THE POSSIBILITY OF A NEARBY NEST. THE ENTRANCE WAS FACING EAST, 5 FEET ABOVE THE GROUND IN A WHITE SPRUCE, PICEA GLAUCA. AT A DISTANCE OF SEVERAL FEET THE YOUNG COULD BE HEARD CALLING FROM WITHIN THE CAVITY. BOTH SEXES CAME EVERY FEW MINUTES TO FEED THEM. THIS IS THE THIRD NEST I HAVE FOUND IN MICHIGAN.
