We could hear him – a woodpecker – each time he stopped in the neighbor’s back yard to peck at their wooden play structure. Janelle would jump up from where she was playing and run to the yard. She would stand at the fence, eyes peering between the pickets into the neighbor’s yard, and watch the little brown bird make a big noise with his beak.
When he flew away, she returned to the house to announce, “Mommy, I saw a woodpecker.”
