Red-headed Woodpeckers and a Pileated Woodpecker were the focus of my picture-taking efforts on several days in the last couple of months. I took the photographs of the Red-headed Woodpeckers at a small pasture area where there are lots of dead standing Pine Trees. That pasture is very close to the entrance to the development where I live. These tall dead trees provide the woodpeckers a place to live and also sometimes have many insects that the birds eat.
The Young Pileated Woodpecker was spotted in my own front yard. That was the only time I have seen a Pileated Woodpecker here in Florida in the few months I have made my hone here in Marion County, Florida. I had also seen a Downy Woodpecker here in my front yard once, and that was back in March. Sorry to say, I missed getting a picture of that particular bird here. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. I hope you’ll enjoy these pictures. I really love spotting and photographing my favorite birds, the Woodpeckers!
