Red-bellied Woodpecker

a creature of amazing beauty, and usually around for the winter season

his back is a pattern of black and white
another beauty
waiting in the wings

The Red-bellied Woodpecker has returned. It’s been a birdy week.  He’s a timid one and rarely sticks around for long, flitting from branch to feeder and back.  Funny that his head is red and not his belly which shows just a hint of color.

He flits and is difficult to capture on film
