The handsome Red-headed Woodpecker that’s been visiting my backyard has developed a fascinating food eating routine…okay…so it may be that I’m just easily entertained…but I do find it fun to watch!
He first heads to one of the feeders and selects a tasty morsel to munch.
Then he flies over and places it in a crevice in one of the limbs that is strapped to my deck rail. Once the nut or seed has been safely deposited, he happily pecks away at it.
Then he repeats the process, grabbing some more food…
…and taking it to his personal feeding post.
He pretty much shows up on a daily basis, and yet he still takes my breath away.
I could take pictures of him all day long and never get bored for a second!
