Friday night I saw what I thought was a woodpecker swoop down and take some sunflower seeds from the ground. I shot a quick picture, but it was blurry as the bird was so far away and then took flight. I diligently searched the web to identify it. Today, I finally found it: a red bellied woodpecker. Kind of a strange name since it does not have a red belly, but nonetheless, that is what I saw.
I sat outside for a few minutes to cool off while cleaning house this afternoon and suddenly there he was. I came in to get the camera and it took about 45 minutes of patient waiting for him to come back. What a treat! Since Woody Woodpecker was a red headed woodpecker with a crested head, I guess I have to stop calling this guy Woody. :)
