This Red-bellied Woodpecker has been coming to the bird seed feeder just below my front porch for several weeks now off and on. At first, the woodpecker could not make sense of the feeder and would only take a seed from the flat plastic bottom tray of the feeder. Now, the bird has learned to put its long pointed bill into the opening of the seed cylinder and take a seed. It prefers Sunflower Seeds to the Millet. I took these pictures from my living room window on October 26, 2012. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy! I will close with my prayers and best of luck to those in the path of the hurricane Sandy in the next few days in the East. Our weather here in Tennessee where I live is not really affected much and we are going to be absolutely fine here.
