A RED-BELLIED WOODPECKER ON A BRIGHT, SPRING DAY – Marilyn Armstrong

We put different food in the feeder today. Well, actually, I put the food in. Owen lowered the feeders so I can reach them myself and not wait for him to get home. There were a lot of baby birds out there today. Tiny little Goldfinches, miniature Nuthatches, really small Chickadees, and occasionally a baby so young, he doesn’t even have all his feathers.

A very redhead

I got a really good lens-lock on a Red-bellied Woodpecker and I since these are one of the birds that usually disappear when I have a camera ready, I took as many pictures as I could. Also, I took a lot of Nuthatch pictures, but that will have to wait for another day.

    • We also got two new birds visiting. I knew they lived in the woods because my books all said so, but today one of them showed up. I did manage to get a few pictures and he is a beauty. It’s not at a great angle, but he is a Rose-Crested Grosbeak. We also have his brethren, the Blue Bunting and the other Turquoise Bunting, but that’s not what he is called. All these birds can mate and produce some wild-looking babies.
