ok I have this bird that shows up this time every year, stays about 3 weeks (hopefully will get a pic later today), I have no idea what he/she is, there is always only one,
size of a redcap woodpecker
long dark pointed beak
medium brown, red cap, black bib/chest, and his rump is white
he doesn't eat from the tree's but rather hops around the yard pecking deep holes into the ground....not much of a description but everytime I try to get a pic he flies away.
