Woodpecker Wednesday

Today’s woodpeckers are the  Downy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers.  I took the two pictures of the tiny Downy on Oct. 4, 2014.  The pictures of the Red-bellied Woodpecker were taken on Oct. 7, 2014.  Both birds were spotted in this same tree across the street from my home.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photograph.  Enjoy!

  1. love the handsome red-bellies. 🙂

  2. I love the woodies, they are always a treat to see! Great shots! Enjoy the rest of your day!

    • Hi Eileen, Thanks! I was happy to get up close to the bird. It was so interested in the caterpillar or insect it was oblivious to my presence. I was just under the tree when I got many of the pictures of the Red-bellied. Have a wonderful Thurs. tomorrow!

  3. Woodpeckers are always a favorite of mine… We have Downys and Red-bellied all year –plus our Pileated.. When the Red-Headed visit me, I get so excited….

    Great photos, Linda.

  4. Very pretty birds! The only woodie that I’ve seen recently is the Flicker.

    • Hi Montucky, Funny you should mention the Flicker – it is the woodpecker I have never seen here. We are supposed to have them in N.Central FL but gee, I have not seen any here. Have a wonderful day today!
