three-toed woodpecker

Is it a sign of spring?
The last few days we have heard the woodpeckers drumming.
Now i don't know if there is a difference in the sound of them tapping the tree, for foraging.
Or are they drumming to attract a mate?

A sign of good things to come ;)

The bugs are moving under the bark and the woodpeckers can hear them, also they are looking for soft deadwood that they can burrow into to make a safe warm nest in the heart of the tree
