Red-bellied Woodpecker Housekeeping

Over and over this Red-bellied Woodpecker peeked out the hole then ducked back in.

Finally he came out and inspected a different hole in the same tree.

The light colored feathers on this woodpecker are much darker grey than others I have seen. I saw the pair at this same tree the week before and thought their color was different, but couldn’t be sure as the light was poor. Zoom in on the image below to see his face and body feathers.
