For those that only watch the trail while walking, stop once in a while and look around. Look up and down and deep into the view on your left and right. Chances are there are some wildlife to see or some looking at you. I saw these wonderful animals while looking into the Ponderosa pine trees.
I heard this woodpecker tapping, then spotted it deep in this tree. Hairy woodpeckers are usually found in large trees and widely distributed throughout North America. They are adaptable and will forage and nest in many different forest types. Woodpeckers are known for tapping tree trunks and branches to find insects in the cracks of the bark and nest cavities. Bugs are their main source of food, but they will eat fruit and nuts as well,
