Wintertime woodpecker

This woodpecker was tapping on the branch of a tree near the Frericks Center. According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, some species of woodpeckers stay in Ohio through the winter. The tapping that woodpeckers do means they’re digging for insects inside trees for food, or communicating to other birds to mark their territory.
