These two Red-bellied Woodpeckers were up in two different Oaks in my old neighborhood in Cumberland County, TN when I took these pictures on March 5, 2013. The chatty birds were doing what woodpeckers often do, which is scout for insects, nuts or fruits to eat. I think I startled one of the birds which promptly flew off. The Red-bellied Woodpeckers are fun to watch. They use their long curved claws to walk seemingly upside down along branches and the trunks of trees. I really enjoy seeing woodpeckers and am quite glad that there are several woodpeckers in the new neighborhood in Florida where I will be living soon!
