Phriday photo quiz #10

For the first time, I knew this was gonna' be a quiz when I took the picture.


Who probably did this? Specifically the large rectangular hole, probably about 8 inches long.

Photo taken at the Mariposa Grove in Yosemite NP.

And, just for fun, here's another "head shot" of the same tree:

It's such a face!  =)

So, set your brain to "puzzle" and let me know what you come up with. Of course, the answer is biological...


 P.S. I just drafted a garden update: what's happened in the last 10 days? Coming soon... =)


  1. its gotta be a woodpecker of some sort.

  2. it looks to be a burned area, possible bark boring beetles invaded the tree and a happy Piliated woodpecker came along to devour the gallery of juicy grubs by digging in through the bark

  3. My vote is Pileated Woodpecker as well.Cheers

  4. Wow, everyone. I am SO IMPRESSED! 1) Meredehuit nails the woodpecker thing within 30 minutes of my posting it, 2) Anonymous gives a SO much more (and probably totally accurate) answer than I ever intended, getting the species totally right, and the Harold backs up Anonymous and is spot on.

    Amazing!! (in other words: Ding Ding Ding!!! You are correct!!)


Cool people write inside rectangles....
