Yesterday was a cold but sunny day, with good light for photos. A pair of Red-Bellied Woodpeckers took turns coming to the bird feeder, and I tried to photograph them flying. I was not successful because they were too fast, but I will keep trying! In the meantime, here are some of yesterday’s shots.
Female Red-Bellied Woodpecker. Note that the red cap does not fully cover her head.
Male Red-Bellied Woodpecker, head fully covered with red cap.
Female Red-Bellied Woodpecker flying away when male landed on bird feeder. This couple never stayed on the bird feeder together, and the female always yielded to the male.
