Looking at your pics, I'd say the ones I see here are the downy woodpeckers. That particular tree has about 6 holes in it. I'd say about 1/4 of the trees I can see from the fence line have holes in them .

I managed to get some shots today...Yayyyyyy! Not nearly as nice as the ones posted but I was excited nevertheless. I would have gotten more but Lucky and Penny insisted on chasing the woodpeckers away . I managed to count 9 woodpeckers in all before they started to flit around and I'd lose count.

The first in this set, the woodpecker had some red on his head (I really know nothing about birds ). Excuse some of the blurriness, there were too many little branches in the way of getting really clear shots.
