The Red Bellied Woodpecker

I get so excited when I see this bird in the yard.
If you are not familiar, this is a Male Red Bellied Woodpecker and it is actually pretty big.
Although I always prefer to photograph my birds in the trees,
- so much prettier -
I have to settle for the deck rail with this bird.
Nuts on the railing of the deck...that's the only way to bring him close to the window.

 I am using my "new" camera all the time now, we have actually become good friends.
It took a little time to figure things out, but I am so glad I invested the time.

If you are new to my blog or just wondering,
I take most of my bird pictures from inside my home, 
in my home office, through an open window.
That's how these were taken!!
