I heard him before I saw him, I had let our dog out and because I am a multitasker I decided to pull some chickweed while I waited for him to come back
I kept hearing this tapping sound, but I was intent on pulling weeds, eventually the "light bulb" went off and I realized I should check out what was making the noise. I took a closer look in the trees around the house and spotted this little guy. He was quite intent on pecking a hole in this tree and was not at all deterred by my presence. He even waited for me to go inside and get my camera.
