TRACES AND SIGNS
the woodpecker’s den
Walking on the notes of silence, the drumming on the trunk leaves no doubt, Mr woodpecker is at home see if he goes out to greet us…
The woodpecker, indicator of good quality of the wood, pierces the trunks in order to look for larvae of insects present under the bark, thanks to the very thin hearing, and to dig the nest, where the eggs are laid and where the first phase of life of the young takes place, generally born between May and June.
The job of digging in the trunks is very tiring and can vary from 3 to 5 weeks.
No bird flies just born, but there comes a time when the call of the air is stronger than the fear of falling, and then life teaches it to spread its wings.”
