What a handsome fellow! Now and then I think I hear a woodpecker, but we don't have the sort of trees they favor around my place, so I usually hear them elsewhere. A friend in the hill country has them in her trees, and we've spent many a morning hour drinking coffee and watching them do just what this one is doing.
nice shots. just shows what a decent camera can do and someone who knows how to do it.
Oh, she is a beauty! Nice photographs of one of my favorite birds/
As NC Mountain Woman pointed out, this is a female, a red-bellied woodpecker. We also see downy woodpeckers and the occasional yellow-bellied sapsucker that is responsible for the holes in our tree. The red-bellied woodpeckers will land on the feeder from time to time, which is a funny, lovely sight.
Great pictures. Thank you.
Like the woodpeckers adherence to social distancing.
Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
This has been an absolutely lovely weekend! My cousin’s daughter got married and the wedding was gorgeous – stay tuned for lots of pictures....
