Kelly’s Corner 091 - Woodpeckers, workers, and Popeye.
Jan Kelly writes a weekly column for Provincetown Magazine. Our three most numerous woodpecker species are the Flicker, the Hairy, and the Downy. What tourists fail to see is the work force. This underlying non-stop layer of people who are posted at restaurants, kitchen and dining rooms, and shops; they stock, sell, and deliver from Cape-wide, Boston, and New York points. Though these workers are in public view at all points and points in time, they may as well be invisible. One of our best workers is year round and highly visible Maurice "Popeye" Enos, who is the bottle and can man.
