Redheaded Woodpecker

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged or did much photography.  I don’t know why.  But there was a redheaded woodpecker in the backyard this weekend and so I shot it. You know what I mean. Here’s proof.

Don’t forget, these are fairly large birds as hopefully you can see in the shots.  If it weren’t for their bright red heads they would be hard to spot.  You can hear them pecking away, but they are fast movers. They don’t sit still long.

  • Way cool. Beautiful bird, but that’s a pileated woodpecker. Redheaded woodpeckers aren’t much bigger than a blue jay.

    Wow, thanks Tim. I stand corrected. I didn’t realize there were two kinds. I guess I’ve never seen a real redheaded woodpecker then!
