Beauty can be so elusive.
Last winter I tried repeatedly, without success, to capture the red bellied woodpecker that graced our bird feeders on a regular schedule.
To quote the Scarecrow from the Wizard of OZ, ” Oh Joy! Oh Rapture!”
I finally caught him/her on the feeder at the front porch.
Not to confuse anyone but this is the Red-bellied woodpecker. They are pale, medium-sized woodpeckers common in forest areas of the East. Their strikingly barred backs and gleaming red caps make them an unforgettable sight – just don’t confuse them with the Red-headed woodpeckers, that are mostly black on the back with white wing patches.
Success at last!
Hope y’all have captured a little success this week that gives you happy.
See you later, Bye!
