woodpeckers....








these photos were taken through my kitchen window so are not great quality..but I enjoy feeding and watching birds and animals come up to eat in my backyard. I have lived in this location now for 6 years..and have tried all that time to get woodpeckers to come up. I finally have them coming up to eat! I had a red-bellied woodpecker and a hairy woodpecker so far...I am so thrilled and excited! Here are a few shots

The bottom ones are properly named, Red-bellied Woodpeckers. If you happen to be able to see their belly once, then you will know where their name comes from. Not the head. Here, if one hangs on the feeder and his tail is extended as a kind of prop on the bottom of the feeder, then that exposes the area between its legs and belly. It is a reddish color. You got some nice pictures here.
