    What a great photo! When I lived in Marin, I loved walking around Lake Lagunitas, where there is a colony of Acorn Woodpeckers.

    Wowie. I’d thought woodpeckers were exclusively bugmeateaters.

    Do they aactually eat the acorns? I have some memory of their “farming” the acorns, i.e. putting them in holes in a tree trunk…the farm…and using the bugs that eventually develope in the acorns to feed their young.

    • I’ve heard about half of their diet is acorns. They do often hawk insects too.
