This Red-bellied Woodpecker was spotted at what I like to call the “Woodpecker colony” located in a pasture near one of the entrances to this development.  This is in a working cattle ranch pasture.  It is a block from the rainfall retention pond where I have been seeing the ducks and egrets.

Last year I also spotted quite a few Red-headed Woodpeckers in this pasture location.  While I was there taking pictures, I did hear what I think was the trill of a Red-headed Woodpecker,  but that bird was likely deep in the nearby Oak forest on the ranch property (not accessible).  I took these pictures of the chatty woodpecker on March 9, 2014 early in the evening.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.  As ever, I hope you will enjoy the pictures!
