Woodpecker: Melanerpes Carolinus


woodpeckerThis handsome bird is a red-bellied woodpecker. You can't see his belly here but check out this earlier post.

It's nice to get a photo of a bird that's not on a feeder once in a while!

  2. Very nice, Linda! I hardly ever see any woodpeckers and on the rare occasion I do, I can't seem to get a decent shot.

  7. It's a distinguished looking woodpecker. I don't know if we have that type here, but we do get the pileated woodpecker.

  12. Nice shots! I like seeing woodpeckers in my yard, but I used to have a rather pesky one that would attack my house.
