Yesterday morning while looking out at the bird feeders I noticed a new bird it was a red – bellied woodpecker. This was the first time I had seen a woodpecker in the bird feeders.
I turned around to get my camera and when I opened the curtain on the french doors it startled him and he flew away. I was thinking to myself I had just blown a perfect photo opportunity. It was not but about five minutes and he came back. I am assuming he liked the bird feed. That was when I was able to grab a few pictures without him seeing me.
“All red – bellied woodpeckers show a black and white barred back, white uppertail converts, grayish white underparts, black chevrons on the lower flanks and undertail converts, and barred central tail feather.”
I found this information at the following link.
