Kris and I were on the way to Prairie to check nest boxes. We stopped at Neil Bridge on the South Fork of the Boise River to view a Lewis’ Woodpecker nest. We spotted the bird in a pine snag next to its nest cavity. Then for no apparent reason this bird flew down near our car and perched on a stump about 20 feet away and posed for the above photo. Now why didn’t it do this when I led a fieldtrip by here a couple of weeks previously?
