Woodpecker Wink!


He was winking at me! 



Red-bellied Woodpecker - Bisset Park - Radford Virginia
If you ever get to the Radford area,  I highly recommend a visit to Bisset Park
It has a lovely walking trail along the New River AND is a GREAT place for birding!

Time spent laughing is time well spent.

Beautiful capture, Kerri! I was very excited last week to see my very first red-bellied woodpecker. I didn't get as good a photo as the one you got though. Now I 'll have to go back. ;))

Oh now he's got some personality!

Would that trail be good for running? How far is it?

Love the Radford area. The only time I get down that way is when I have a dentist appt. I really need to come down and enjoy the area a bit more.

Thanks for the chuckle! I sleep with my window open and about 4 a.m. this morning a woodpecker was getting his breakfast from the old oak tree right outside.

Of course he was. He thought you were hot stuff.

Plus he now is on bloogers. How proud he is.

That is cute.

What a pretty boy!

What a cool photo!

I've never seen a red-bellied woodpecker before. We have a different kind here...I forget the name...Downey Woodpecker or something like that.

Kerrie,

Thanks for coming by. These are some gorgeous photos of the woodpecker. Very clear and lovely detail. I don't think I have ever seen a red-bellied woodpecker, but then I am in the Northwest. Hope you are having a great week.
