Saturday wake-up

At the crack of dawn Early this morning we were awakened by the sound of one of our resident woodpeckers whom I call NOISY! She hasn't been around as much this year as in the past few, but she comes to the same spot on the utility pole outside my sewing room window...sometimes it is her 'mate' with his bright red eye puffs. It rained ALL night long and then the sun came out for a few hours...I guess she was taking advantage of the clear skies to look for her brunch. I am not sure what she can find in that old utility pole, but she pecks away for about 15 minutes and then flies off. Today she watched me intently as I hung out my window ever so slowly opened the window to take this shot. Wasn't she cooperative? A few minutes later she left empty beaked...or did she? Who can tell?
