Red-bellied woodpecker (Melaneries carolinus) on a fence post
Although red-bellied woodpeckers are common in the eastern U.S, I live just north of its range and so was very pleased to find a friendly one on the north shore of Lake Ontario.
Red-bellied woodpecker on a tree
This guy was wedging seeds and nuts underneath tree bark. I'm guessing it was saving treats to eat during the winter. Red-bellied woodpeckers also hide food in fences, which is exactly what it may have been doing in the first photo.
Camera Girl... I am amazed at all of nature photos you are posting. Keep on clicking.
Your bird photos are my favorites. You capture such detail.
Stunning, and woodpeckers are one of my favourite bires!
Truly a handsome fella!
What a beauty! I used to have all kinds of woodies in my backyard in Mississippi, but I have yet to see one in Toronto.
he is beautiful, so is the post, I like it as much as the woodpecker... great shot
We occasionally see these birds here in SD, so it isn't just the Eastern U.S. where they live. Great photos of your feathered friend.
Great shots they can sometimes be skittish!! Last fall we had a red-bellied take sunflower seeds from our feeder, one at a time. He spent the entire day fetching seeds and hiding them. This went on from sun up to sun down, day after day!!!
Great captures!! I doubt his friends will make it this far north, but I can still admire wonderful shots!
Beautiful! These guys have been visiting the feeders here, I just haven't had time to get shots of them.
One są śliczne, a zdjęcia wspaniałe. Pozdrawiam.
They are beautiful, and wonderful pictures. Yours.
These shots are fantastic! You have better bird pictures than my bird identification book.
Great find!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
I see these birds at our bird feeders but have never been able to take such a close shot – these are very good photos.
i love these guys. we keep them year-round here. :)
Beautiful bird, appreciate all the bird shots you capture with the camera.
Your photos of this woodpecker are extraordinary! And such a perfect light! The bird is also soooo sweet! :)
This is a beautiful bird and an appearance from one is always a treat.
Great post! Awesome photos!
Very pretty. We have lots of different Woodpeckers here but I don't think we have that one. Nice shot. MB
lovely photos of a very pretty woodpecker. I'm always astonished how many woodpecker species are variations on a theme in their plumages...
It's a beautiful bird - I love that bright red spot of a head and the golden light here, so warming!
Beautiful shots of the elusive Red-bellied Woodpeckers.
Glad you were finally able to spot one visiting your area.
nice photos, we had one in the garden a few weeks ago, but haven't seen it since
Why do y'all call red-headed woodpeckers red-bellied woodpeckers? Seems very strange. Cute though. But they can make a mess of trees!
We had lots of red-headed woodpeckers in south Florida. Well, I thought that's what they were. Now I'm not so sure. Thanks a lot! :-)
A couple of lovely shots!
Really like the tones in that first one.
(I actually had a red-bellied ready to post but saw you already had so I switched.) :)
Great photos of the woodpecker. They are beautiful.
Once again, great portraits of the woodpecker, and lovely bokeh to boot!
He's a dapper guy! Fabulous pics of him, EG!
Oh what wonderful pictures - I really love your first one. He is quite an elegant looking bird isn't he?
Wow! I have never seen one before! It's is so beautiful!
These are so great, they almost don't look real. WOW!!!!!
Pretty shots of the Redbellied Woodie! They are great birds to see! Thanks for sharing, have a great week!
Oh you rock these are amazing. B
Great shots of the Red-bellied Woodpecker CameraGirl! They are certainly amazing birds!
Beautiful images of this colorful bird. I'm going to take a color-blindness test tomorrow. Its head looks red but its belly looks yellow. What do I know?
These are great portraits of the woodpecker.
Great pictures of a great bird - I miss woodpeckers!
Did you post a "banging your head against solid objects" to continue my politicians theme!!
Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW!

Beautiful photos of the woodpecker! I especially love the first one....Christmas card material for sure!
The texture of that first image is fanastic.
Those are incredible photos! I especially like the second one because of the light. Magnifique!
What beautiful captures! I love these woodpeckers.
We have a lot of these in our neck of woods. Love them.
That first photo is just gorgeous! Well done! We have them at the feeders, but I've never taken shots like these.
Beautiful woodpecker photos
Very nice images! We had a pair nest in the yard this year. A lot of fun watching them teach the young one to eat!
Wow, new camera?
It's always an unexpected treat finding one of these "rare" birds outside the zone. Good eye:)
One of these came to my feeder this morn, also....
