Tuesday Tweets

 The red-headed woodpecker is a declining species in North America. The primary reason for their decline is habitat loss. The red-head does not bore into trees in search of insects, instead they eat a mix of nuts, seeds, fruit and insects which they catch in the air. They are also pretty unique in that they are one of few woodpeckers that cache extra food for times when food is less available. Because of this they look for a habitat with a lot of old wood, which they use for caching. Unfortunately many people are quick to remove dead growth because of fire danger which limits the amount of preferable habitat which is available.

Welcome to Tuesday Tweets! To join in the fun just post a photo of a bird and then link it by here by using the handy dandy link below. Then make sure you visit other sites to do a little bird watching.

it is sad that the habitat and old dead trees are removed so quickly now, a few of our parks are marking dead trees to be left for the woodpeckers...we remove the trees but they are the nurseries for many birds and also many plants to grow in...and make great soil!
