While out filling the bird bath I noticed bark had fallen off the tulip poplar tree. I know the weather can cause this to happen sometimes.
But there are two woodpeckers around as well that might be the culprit. It is hard to see in this photo but there is a hole that possibly the woodpeckers are using to hide their food. Not sure but I will keep an eye on the tree.
Sometimes you have to use tar on the trees when this happens. But for now I will watch and see if I can witness any woodpecker activity.
Seen any birds in your backyard lately?
