How cool! 6+ years ago, when we moved to this house (just SE of Traverse City), we had Red-Headed Woodpeckers like crazy during the Summer! About 3 years ago, one showed up on December 10, stayed all winter/spring/summer and brought the "kids" around in late Summer. Since then, we've only had a sporadic visit or have heard them in the woods. Where are you located Offytwo?
