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!
