Return of the Red-headed Fellow

The handsome Red-headed woodpecker that showed up in my backyard last week has been making return visits.

This afternoon (sorry ’bout the sun flare) he even braved making a brief appearance on the deck while I was standing out there with my camera.

He didn’t stick around long, but he did manage to give an open-beaked glare to a young Blue Jay that invaded his personal space.

I keep hoping to snap a picture that will truly capture how drop dead gorgeous he is, but until then, you’ll just have to take my word for it. Β He is one breathtaking bird!

  1. Great captures! You’re right, when the sun glows on them, their head is such a gorgeous, bright red, contrasting their black and white body. He’ll return for more ops, Kathy, he’s enjoying your backyard! πŸ™‚

  2. You’ve already done it! Wow, he is amazing! I was showing your prior photos of him to Hub yesterday and he was stunned too. Such a talent He’s blessed you with, my friend! And we are all the beneficiaries, woo hoo! πŸ˜€
