This Red-bellied Woodpecker is now in residence here in the yard. It is definitely the “Boss” among the songbirds in the yard. When the Red-headed Woodpecker family migrated South for the Winter, the Red-bellied Woodpeckers moved in. The small flock of Red-bellied Woodpeckers has been in the area all Summer. They had lived in the Oaks along the street end of the property near the gulch. Now, they have prime real estate in fine Oaks next to the pond and yes, very close to the bird feeder. I took these pictures in my yard on Nov. 2, 2012. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
