The first time I ever saw an Acorn Woodpecker was in the summer of last year. We were at Lema Ranch in Redding and when we first heard a whacka-whacka sound, we knew there must be an incredible bird behind that unique sound. Sure enough, we soon spotted the noisy woodpecker and I've been in love ever since.
On Tuesday, when we went back to Lema Ranch, we saw our noisy little friends in the same tree.
Somehow it's comforting knowing that they live in that same spot and I can visit them whenever I want to see their cute little faces.
