A Visit from a Red-bellied Woodpecker

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
This Male Red-bellied Woodpecker is a frequent visitor.  
What a wonderful treat to look out the window and see this handsome fella!

I was just shooting pictures of a red bellied woodpecker outside our bedroom window!

Ooh, there's something interesting down there!
Lovely shot!

Okay, I just read your full profile. No wonder we were shooting the same species on the same day; you're just 50 miles up I-81 from us! We're live just outside Wytheville.

The birds help out in the winter at my house. I would go crazy with out their beauty. I miss the butterflies so very much by February.

I am always so happy to check into your blog and find "another" great photo. Such a great shot of the woodpecker--I must say I just had two that would not leave our house alone. They were both most stubborn. I got up on a 20 foot ladder and "stuck" pieces of colored paper around the eaves. They FINALLY got the hint and flew off to peck holes in someone else's house!!!

Country Girl said...

You are so blessed. With the visitors and with your God-given talent to capture them. Wow, Kerri !

deb said...

I'd say. I'm jealous in a friendly way.
