Red Bellied Woodpecker.
Wow! My mom and I were just talking about how we hear and see more birds than usual this year. Wonder if they will return earlier because of our warm winter?
Great shot! I love woodpeckers. Except when they peck on my cedar-sided house. Which is too much of the time, actually.
That is a great photo!! Love the woodpeckers.
I watched birds all day yesterday, even fed the jays peanuts, but I saw nothing quite that colorful and unusual! The robins have come back in droves. They chirp and eat in the juniper bushes outside my office. They charm me.
What a great photo! I’ve always wanted to photograph birds but have met with only minimal success…
Beautiful photo Carole! And they are eating my house too!

I love the color. I’m not that versed in bird identification, but the crown is so magnificent that all I want to do is stare at him.
Most beautiful bird and photo alike 🙂
That is so beautiful! The colors are so vibrant. They add a lot of cheer to our wintery days.
I have to remember to get my bird feeder back out. Actually – I have to remember to tell my hubby to do it. He is in charge of all things in my basement.
What a friendly fellow!
Wow! The only thing better than watching birds is looking at great photos of them!
LOVE THIS PHOTO!
Ha! Before seeing the photo I thought that it was going to read :
One More Sleep!
Great photo btw!

Wow, that’s lovely. I have shot hummingbirds and know how challenging bird photos are. PS I mean shot with a camera, of course 🙂
Jealous. I’ haven’t seen woodpecker’s on my feeders for months.
Love the photo – woodpeckers are such fun to watch!

Great blog. I was checking my search ranking and came on your blog. I am another Carole from New Zealand.

http://caroleschatter.blogspot.co.nz/2012/01/top-ten-places-i-have-visited-in-new.html. I will enjoy following your blog. I haven’t knitted for a while but maybe when winter comes around I will start again – it is high summer here now.
love! I tried all afternoon to take a photo of the woodpecker who visits my friend’s feeder, but every time I got my camera on and started to focus he’d fly off. this is a great shot!!
I’ve never seen that type of woodpecker before. We get hairy, downy and sometimes pileated woodpeckers at our feeder in Northern Ontario. Don’t you love the name ‘woodpecker’?
