I love red-bellied woodpeckers! The red on their heads and their bellies give them a distinct marking. Beautiful pictures, Teresa!

Very cool close-up.
Hey, are there any good Irish pubs in Texas?

Linda Kay said...

Theresa, what a great shot. Wonder why they call them red-bellied, when it's the head that is red?

Kate said...

You certainly have many fine photos of this bird. No green birds today?!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I think red-headed makes more sense than red-bellied, but what do I know.

LV said...

You have spoiled the birds with such nice feeders and plenty of food. Have not sen one of these in a long time.

don said...

A very pretty series of this beautiful bird. She has such a neat color scheme.

Very splendid indeed! I LOVE these woodpeckers and they are not easy to capture as they are quite flighty. At lease mine are.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

They are so sweet and I love catching the glimpse of red. We usually see some here in our trees after most of the people have left the RV Park (I know they are here now, but hiding from all the noise).

Great pictures here. They even show the red on the belly.

Nancy J said...

Hold on tight, to have a feed, what effort, and super series. lovely, every one.I always admire the detail you get on their feathers, and such a wee hole for the bird seed, maybe Mr Squirrel would not manage that.

They're a very colorful bird and it put out lots of action for you.

Beautiful captures. They do have a bit of red on the belly but mostly white.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Really good pictures of this beauty. We should start seeing them here soon... They're here now, just hiding. After most of the snowbirds leave, we start seeing a few more birds right here in the neighborhood.

Nice group.

Great shots . . . I think the female looks soft and pretty. The red head is really more distinct than the belly. Looks like Bubba was photo bombing . . .

Wonderful close shots. They're such gorgeous birds.

Crafty Green Poet said...

NatureFootstep said...

I got my first picks of one of these dudes last week but these put mine to shame! You must have been really close! Even with a 300 mm lens I wasn't so lucky.

Mary Cromer said...

They are such beautiful birds, a bit of a problem for a cedar sided home, but we get along on our terms ;)~

♥ Łucja-Maria ♥ said...

He is wonderful.

Leslie said...

These are GREAT! I would be happy dancing if I captured these. What a beauty!!!
