Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

Here are some of the resident Red-headed Woodpeckers and Northern Yellow-shafted Flicker Woodpeckers that I saw around the little farm in the past few days.  I also saw one Red-bellied Woodpecker but the pictures I took were way too bad to post except for the one here which is marginal.  I sure to love seeing all of these Woodpeckers here.

There are a pair of Red-headed Woodpeckers here in the Oaks next to the pond and a pair of the Flickers that live in the gulch below the pond’s dam.  There are likely seven Red-headed Woodpeckers in the neighborhood and maybe three or four Red-bellied Woodpeckers around, too.  I think there may be a Downy Woodpecker or two in the neighborhood but I seldom see them.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

    just love both of these birds!

  2. Always love seeing your woodpeckers, Linda. Right now, we’ve had quite a few Red-heads around here —and at our feeders…. We’re getting ready to get a new deck—-so that will upset the birds for awhile…. Hopefully, they won’t give up on us. Usually they do NOT…

    Have a great day.
    Hugs,

  3. Babies!!! And lots of them…I can’t wait!

  4. Love those Red-heads! Your mention of the Downeys reminded me that I haven’t seen them around here for months now.

  5. Great birds, Linda! The Flicker and the Redhead are awesome birds. I think the Redhead woodie is my favorite because I do not see it very often. You are very lucky. Great shots.
