Hole in one?

Starting out for an amble around the property yesterday morning I came across this strange looking hole in an insect bole on a dried piece of goldenrod.

Looking around I saw more similar holes.

Then I heard the familiar "bek bek."

And saw this up the nearby tree: A female downie woodpecker.
She had been busy at several of the little winter homes on the remaining stocks of wildflowers in the pasture. Amazing!
