A Busy Woodpecker


I spotted this Red-Bellied Woodpecker a week ago when out for a walk in a park and struggled to get a pic of him since he never stayed still for long. This pic was in deep shadow but showed him the best as he stayed still with some yummy bit of food in his mouth.

RedPat I am guessing you favour birds with red heads. :-)

He's a beauty with his bright red head. And, it even looks like he's blushing a bit.

He was busy and couldn't be bothered to look at you! But you got a great photo anyway! Happy new year!

You did well to capture that image. They do dart around.

Wonderful photo. I am always delighted when I see woodpeckers around here, but not so delighted when they pound on my house.
