This young Red-headed Woodpecker (who as of yet has no red on his head!) made his first solo appearance to the Bark Butter branch today.
I have been waiting for this handsome guy to get close enough, and linger long enough, for me to get some better photos, so I was pleased when he obliged.
Doesn’t he look like he’s a part of a an old black and white movie where I’ve colorized the scenery around him?
One day he will grow up to be vibrant and colorful like his folks…
…but for now, I’d say he looks pretty magnificent in monochrome!

Wonderfully sharp shots of this handsome little bird!
Now that he has decided to venture forth on his own, he has become quite bossy about claiming this branch as his own! He is so funny to watch.
Good captures of the junior! I had RHW for nesting in my backyard for a few years and then left. I wish they return! Thanks for the post Kathy! 🙂
Aren’t they stunning! I hope you get some that return to your yard!
Oh how exciting! I would not have known! 🙂
This guy is so comical to watch…he has decided this branch belongs to him!
Amazing how beautiful Jr. is in black and white! ❤️❤️❤️
He is such a cutie!
He has a beautiful shade of black and white! He looks great.
He’s adorable, Kathy!
I so agree!
