There are Red-bellied Woodpeckers in this neighborhood. One lives in the Oak forest at the front of my place along the street. Another lives just at the shoreline of the little private community lake across the road. The third lives in an Oak grove across the road and down the street a little bit. My resident woodpeckers seem to have moved along towards the street end of the place here. Oh well.
Come Spring, the Red-headed Woodpeckers and Northern Yellow-shafted Flickers will be back here. We also may see one or more of the Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers in coming months. Who can tell? I sure am happy to have the Red-bellied Woodpeckers around all-year long. I took these pictures on Feb. 4, 2013 and again on Feb. 5, 2013 in my yard and along the street just in front here. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy! My apologies for this showing up later than usual. I had thought I posted but I think I left the site too soon and the post was incomplete. Oops!
