A strange noise from above!

I was sitting on the back porch early this morning sipping a cup of hot tea and enjoying the view across the field. I kept hearing this crazy tap-tapping and figured that one of the neighbors must be doing a project using some strange gadget or something! I finally went out to the garden to check on my plants and realized the sound was coming from ABOVE! We have the most beautiful mama woodpecker making her nest in the telephone pole on the property! John Paul and I sat out there for the good part of the morning just watching her:

Welcome new neighbor!

Edited to add:
Upon further research on our new neighbor we found our "she"
is actually a HE!
