Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

This Red-bellied Woodpecker was hunting for insects, likely Ants, in the crevices of a low wooden rail fence at a small park I visited on Monday afternoon.  The birds and animals at this park, probably see people all the time, which is why the bird was so close to where the parking lot and people were on this occasion.

This bird was not in any way concerned about anything other than catching its meal!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger photograph.  Enjoy!
