The red bellied woodpecker was back.  When the grackles took over, they disappeared.  After I figured out how to discourage them, the downy woodpeckers returned.  It has been several months since I last saw the larger woodpecker come to feed on my suet cakes.  I could never figure out why they call this bird a red bellied woodpecker.  The red markings are on its head not its belly but in back of their head.  Anyway, I was thrilled to see one today and hope it comes back.
