Never ignore a death tree!
For years we have considered discussing with local authorities to ban cutting down dead trees. An enormous amount of life develops on still standing decaying trees. But more intriguing is the overwhelming bird activity using in many different ways death trees. From nesting holes, to stealing eggs such as the case of Toucans.
Lesson to be learn
This rather common but beautiful Caribbean Lowlands woodpecker was NOT nesting on this hole it was actually drinking water from the very heavy down poor the night before. Sit by death trees they always have something on them.
