Red-Headed Woodpecker

I have been watching him/her in the yard for a
couple of weeks and finally got one picture
from 60' away (not very
good quality). Males and females
are the same colors. That is a
pecan in his/her mouth.


  1. What a gorgeous woodpecker, I have never seen that variety in my neck of the woods... thanks for sharing.


  2. What a great photo! They really are hard to get a good photo of and this one is so unusual with a pecan! I wonder what he will do with that? heehee!

  3. Are you busy, busy getting ready for the fall show>, I am still way behind. We are going antiquing down in Mount Dora this weekend, they are having their extravaganza, you might want to visit this one day, you would love it!

    1. Hi Cyndy..thanks for stopping by...well... I am not as busy as I should be. I was going to get a lot done husband went to Green Cove for a military meeting...and it is almost 4:00 and haven't sewed a stitch...and he will be home around 6:00. I'm also busy with the garden. We grow and freeze about 60% of the veggies we eat all year and that can be time consuming. The yellow squash,zucchini,spinach, rutabaga will be gone in a couple weeks and then the tomatoes, bell pepper,and carrots start getting ripe and the okra produces until fall.
      I think I remember something you posted last year about swimming with the visited near you. My daughter lives in Tallahassee and I think the kids ( ages 5 and 3) would like it..I told her that I would check with you. If you think of anything, please let me know.

      Have a good week

  4. Hello Maxie
    beautiful picture of the woodpecker. We had one hanging upside down on our hummingbird feeder yesterday, seems every time they are close enough to get a good shot I do not have my camera, then they play with me and I can't get a picture LOL

  5. nice post thanks for sharing...looking for to visit more...blessings
