Here are some more pictures of the resident Red-Headed Woodpecker that I took yesterday. The bird has learned to use the bird feeder and comes for seed at least once a day. I have decided that Red-Headed Woodpeckers like wooden electric poles. I have seen many woodpeckers on the tall poles. They must get a lot of sound out of pecking on the hard wood. As long as the bird does not damage the pole or the electric equipment, I am not unhappy to let the birds perch on the pole.
I believe that the=re are several Red-Headed Woodpeckers around here. There may be several of these birds in the fringe of hardwood forest that is South of my home at the street. I am quite pleased each time I see the woodpeckers. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
