What find, Bob. I would have never thought that the woodpeckers would put their stash in a place like this. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you, Shirley. It surprised me also. That tree grows immediately adjacent to a corner of a deck surrounding my daughter’s home. She wasn’t aware of it until I made this image and showed it to her.
