We love it when we spot a new visitor to the garden. On Sunday October 13, 2012 around bird feeding time (between 4:30 and 5) a red bellied woodpecker was spotted on the peanut feeder. There was just time to snap a few photos through the kitchen door. This is a medium sized woodpecker with a black and white back described as zebra like.
The male has the red head from beak down its back neck. The female has a red patch on the back of the head.
The next image is a little blurry but gives a good view of the back of the woodpecker.
This brings our total of different species to 5 … red bellied,downy, hairy, red headed, pileated.
