RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER: A PHOTO A WEEK – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: New

There’s nothing new at the moment except for a new year about to arrive. And a new lens for the camera. So I guess you can say that these pictures were created from something new. You think?

And the bird feeder is almost new. I bought them in November which, as far as I can tell, was yesterday and I have NO idea how we got to the end of December.

Because I’m still in November. I am so unready for a new year!

One Red-bellied Woodpecker. He’s also square because I keep making square pictures. I can’t help myself. A  month of square pictures and I’m in the groove
And just because, this is the start of a new day for the new year

    1. It actually has a red patch on its stomach. It can’t be red-headed because that name’s taken so … red-bellied. But they do have red blotches on their stomachs. Hard to see unless they are in a position where you can see their stomach.

      1. Yes, but with a couple of exceptions, they all have at least a patch of red on their head. So the original Redhead is the Pileated Woodpecker — a BIG bird with a beak like a drill — who looks just like Woody … and there are a couple with complete red-heads, but they are smaller without that interesting wedge-shaped head. Somebody has to make the call 🙂

  1. Hurrah for a new lens! I love getting new lenses. 🙂 Love the photos, and I totally agree about it needs to still be November. Thanks for joining the challenge, and Happy New Year!
