Happy Day

Red Bellied was lower in the tree.

Such a pretty bird.
Today reminded me of the fun of Spring.

Dear Q~

Tell me again, I can't remember - is this a woodpecker? I have seen one in my yard too, and didn't know for sure.

Hi Sprite,
Yes, this is a male Red Bellied Woodpecker. It is about 9 inches long, about the size of a small Robin. The female has a gray crown.
I always get excited whenever I see them.
Bug eaters and so pretty with their zebra stiped back.
These are Woodpecker days!
