Woodpecker


This is a red-bellied woodpecker. Don't ask me why they call them that, as their bellies are pure white. These guys are not as common to my area as yesterday's pecker, so it's a real treat that he stopped by and posed for my camera. This photo is quite recent so perhaps he was just passing through on his way somewhere else, or maybe he's made our beautiful pines his new home!

I promise though that this is the end of the woodpecker pics for awhile. Hope you're not getting tired of them.

I have one just like him in my yard. He stops by every morning for a peanut.

A truly beautiful bird. I hope he makes his home in the pines in your yard! If not, send him to Ocala.

Excuse my juvenile thoughts, but I laughed while reading your post today :)

Je crois qu'il faut que j'aille regarder un bouquin sur les différentes sortes de pics-verts-rouges-blancs-noirs etc.

I like the idea of red-bellied woodpeckers with white bellies...
