Woodpecker Action

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!

  2. I am envious of your redhead woodie, they are one of my favorites. But, I do love them all..the woodies and the flicker. Have a great night.

  3. We have plenty of Flickers, but I’d sure like to have a few of the red-heads!
