Wild Bird Wednesday


 Red Headed Woodpecker
I assume there is a nest near by because this young lady is ready to pop ... Don't recall ever seeing a bird so pregnant :) 

Pickles and Ice Cream in the feeder?  Well, whatever, when was the last time you saw a woodpecker eating out of a feeder ... me either :)  She flew off and I have seen her and her mate several times since, but not in the last several days.  Busy with kids? ... I hope that's it.

  8. Great photos!
    The only Red-Header Woodpeckers I've seen here were high in the treetops. Difficult to photograph - when they see me, they scoot around to the other side of the tree!
