Red Bellied Woodpecker


I had so many I could not choose just one...


I usually only get in two or three shots before it takes off...


And to tell the truth the photos below may be a different bird.  The bird above flew away...and a few minutes later I thought it came back.  And it may be the same bird but notice the one messed up feather in the following photos.


The bird/s were sure active.


And one last shot, very similar to one above:

They are beautiful pictures! Hmmm, could he he have done something to that one feather in the short time he was gone? I can see where you could not choose, each picture has it's own special beauty. I think #5 is my favorite, because look how the sun is hitting the red head!! It is shining! But the pictures on each side of it look almost like he is looking at us. A wonderful series, sharp and close!

What a beauty! (or beauties). Must be getting hungry at this time of year if it's spending longer on the feeders.

Jene said...

It was nice to see the different pose of the bird. They look colorful. I would feel relaxed when i spend time with them...

I LOVE Red Bellied Woodpeckers. They frequent my suet feeder and they live in the back yard in a tree that is dying. They find plenty of bugs out there! You are making me yearn for the Spring even more than I do now.

Hello, pretty series on your Red-bellied Woodpecker. They do love the suet.

Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

A fine series of this great looking woodpecker. If it's two birds that is ok. Very well done.

Beautiful Woodpecker. I don't think we have that one out here. May be the same bird-who knows.
I've been off the computer for a few days but here I am again. LOL

Looks like the same bird to me, Rose, and a beautiful one at that. The red-headed Woodpecker is one of my favorite birds here. I will send you a picture.

They are such beautiful birds. I love all the woodpeckers but especially the Red-bellied and the Downys.

Fabulous pictures, and I've never even seen one!

Goodness, he's spectacular. What lovely photos Rose. Our woodpeckers look very different over here in the UK.
