These three Red-Headed Woodpeckers were flying around the yard here on May 24, 2012 in the late afternoon. I think one must have been a female and the other two males but it is quite hard to tell which gender these birds are since both males and females look pretty-much alike. The birds were either on the electric pole or up in the crown of one of the Oaks that is next to the pond. They seemed to be agitated to a degree. That same Oak was where the Great Blue Heron recently perched. The dead top of that tree is a popular place for the birds here. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
