Mr. Woody Woodpecker

Watch closely. This is the woodpeckers hole in the tree. 
I don't know if it's the same woodpecker. But that is a favorite spot for them.

I'm not sure what kind of woodpecker this is. I thought it was the pileated woodpecker. But it doesn't really look like the photos I found. 

I thought it was the red headed woodpecker, but their heads are all red.

I believe it is the red-bellied woodpecker.

Just looks like it doesn't have a care in the world. Up in its spot, watching the world go by. 

I watched for some time. The woodpecker watches as the squirrels scamper across the wires and over the rooftops. 

Wish I could get all birds to be this still when I'm photographing them!


In book club news, I've decided most will be pretty busy with the holidays in November and December. So let's take it up again in January. 

I will have books up for you to choose from by December.

  1. A pileated woodpecker has a head like the old Woody Woodpecker cartoon character. This bird looks like the red-bellied woodpecker though its body could change my mind. ha Nice photos.

  2. Isn't he beautiful!!!! I am so glad he stayed still for you so that we could all enjoy him! :)

  3. I think you are right, Brenda. We get pileated woodpeckers around here. They are ungainly in appearance eith a large body and narrow head with a large red crest. :)

  4. You are so right Brenda--it's a red bellied woodpecker. Your photography is award winning! ♥

  5. Wow! What a pretty bird. We have ugly woodpeckers out here in California. Beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing.

  6. What amazing photos! I've never seen one get all the way INSIDE a tree and peek out! How neat! Enjoy your afternoon my friend!

  7. Great shots Brenda. I have an awful time getting bird shots.

  8. Great photos! I love bird watching also, but don't try to photograph any but hummingbirds.

  9. These photos are amazing. I have seen many woodpeckers pecking on trees but never having made a hole and peering out of it. It doesn't look like the pileated one in my book. I am stumped.

  10. I can hardly ever get good pictures of birds. I'm just not that well suited with the camera. I can watch birds all day...but take their pictures. No.
    These are wonderful Brenda...and I agree, I think it is the red bellied woodpecker too.

  11. Great photos! We have these same woodpeckers in NJ.

  12. We have a crazy mixed up woodpecker. He pecks our chimney flue. At 6 am, only on weekends. It's as if the God of alarm clocks sent him.

  13. Thank you so much for sharing your pictures! I love birds too, but my picture taking talent is non existent! Blessings for you from Carolyn in Florida

  14. Wow, great shots! I've never had very good luck with woodpeckers because they dash from tree to tree. How lucky to have it pose for you and your camera!


  15. From what I can see, He's a red bellied Woodpecker..There's one around here as well..

  16. Fantastic shots, Brenda! I don't think I've seen that variety here in Michigan. I have the hardest time getting decent photos of birds. I'm jealous! ;)
    I thought of you while writing my latest blog post. Take a peek and look at the Monarchs we discovered in the garden! I'm so excited, as we haven't seen a one this year.

  17. I think the birds in your neighborhood have all decided to hang out at your place and be still so that you can take great pics and we can all enjoy hem. Thank them for me. ;)

  18. Great photos, Brenda. I wish more birds would stay still, too. Just when I think I have the perfect picture they fly away. SIGH!! xo Laura
