Red Bellied Woodpecker

We woke up to snow this morning, not too much at all but sure enough to enjoy watching as it falls. While we sat in our chairs eating our Mickey Mouse shaped waffles and watched the snow fall out our windows, Clayton looked behind him and saw this wood pecker and made a comment to me about how pretty he was. So I jumped out of my chair and opened the sliding glass door just a few inches and snapped several shots of this little guy as his moved up the tree, from what I can tell this species is a Red Bellied Woodpecker.

We have seen three different types of wood peckers this one being the largest of them all.

  1. Every once in a while, we will see a woodpecker in our valley. I love to hear them busy at work on the trees.
