I took these pictures of Woodpeckers in my yards on August 12, 2012 and August 14, 2012. I am still amazed at the fact that one or two of these beautiful and smart Red-headed Woodpeckers come to the bird seed feeder. One Red-headed woodpecker made a crackle-rasp sound to scare the little finches off of the feeder. The Red-headed Woodpeckers have been making many trips to the bird seed feeder. The Red-headed Woodpeckers have started to work on storing food for the Fall and Winter.
It is so wonderful to have a lot of woodpeckers around. I mostly see the Red-heads here in the yards but occasionally see Northern Yellow-shafted Flickers as well. The Red-bellied Woodpeckers have been run-off by the Red-heads and live in the woods at the front of the property. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
