Good spotting, Larry H. on the drilled holes, visible in the third photo. I did not notice them when I first looked through the six photos!

Lynne and Gary,
Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers drill those horizontal holes
that show up so well in the third photo.  We have a
pair of sapsuckers wintering in our neighborhood. 
They are very fond of the persimmons that are still
on the tree.

Hi & Happy Holidays

We simply cannot find an identification for this woodpecker. Can someone help? We're in Lenox, MO - just West of Salem & South of Rolla.
Thanks in advance!

Lynne
