Yes this is Balch Rd. near Lyle, in Klickitat County. Balch loops off of Old Highway 8 and returns to that road about one mile west. You want to check around the eastern intersection of Balch with Old Highway 8.

In late May of this year, I saw two Acorn Woodpeckers along Old Hwy. 8, near where its east jct. with Balch Rd. The birds were very close to road (Hwy. 8), atop small oak trees.

I saw Acorn Woodpeckers using the granary tree in February and April of this year. In the past they have nested near the house Roger mentioned up Balch Road just below the converted schoolhouse home of Galen Wood. Check both areas as they store acorns in the granary tree for their winter food supply and nest in the surrounding forest. And as the acorns ripen this fall the woodpeckers will be gathering them and bringing to the granary tree.
