Had just settled into my favorite campground chair when I heard the boisterous sound of this Woodpecker flying to one of his favorite perches. Not only a perch but a favorite food plot!
I believe he might have come to say Hello and welcome me back to Doris Campground but I knew his only interest was in the old dead tree across the way in the other campsite! His favorite meal lives beneath the bark of this old Widow Maker!
What's In A Name?
Have always had a hard time not calling this guy red-headed but to amend my ways I now know this is a Red-Bellied Woodpecker. The Sibley Guide to Birds tells me!
