In front of Dottie’s house there is a tree that a red bellied wood pecker had it’s nest this year. I loved watching the birds going in and out of it. The nest was in a big hole in a part of the tree that was dead and had no limbs so it could be seen easily.
I noticed a coupled of weeks ago that the nest had been abandoned. I was so disappointed because I had gotten used to the birds being there. Every day I checked to see if any other birds took over the nest, but it remained empty.
We had a bad storm the other day and the part of the tree where the nest was broken off right at the top of the nest. What a disappointment that there won’t be woodpeckers nesting in that tree anymore.
