This photo was taken early in the morning. The woodpecker was waiting to fly to the hummingbird feeder to load up on nectar. It was really funny to see such a large bird drinking out of the feeder as it swung back and forth! I saw a pair of these birds at Garner State Park calling and doing a mating dance, but they were too high to get a good shot.
