Due to storms the past few springs, we have quite a few new utility poles in
my neighborhood.  This morning a flicker was sitting on top of one of the
new transformers, drumming.  Not sure what the transformer casing is made
of, but it didn't sound metallic.  Have also seen a red-bellied woodpecker,
hammering on top of another utility pole.
Spent the afternoon at Riverfront Park in St Charles (Tartan Days); didn't
see any purple martins yet.
