This afternoon, I (translate that to say “hubby”) filled the Dogwood cavity – aka, the peanut pantry – and waited to see who would show up.
The first to arrive, and therefore awarded the starring role in this post, was a handsome Red-bellied Woodpecker, who landed near the top of the tree trunk and carefully observed the area.
Then he proceeded to the end of the Bark Butter Branch, where he could get a birds-eye view (bad pun!) of the peanut stash and consider what competitors might also have their mind set on this tasty treat.
With no other birds opposing his approach, he landed at the cavity…
…took a peak inside…
…and made his selection.
Once the prized peanut was securely lodged at the base of his beak…
…he took off in a beautiful blur to enjoy his bounty.
I’ve heard it said that every party’s better with Planters, and I think this fellow would surely agree!

Such an exquisite pattern on the wings!
He is beautiful!
Great heading Kathy and you made his day with the peanuts and our day for the photos. 🙂
It is fun to sit back and watch them discover the stash. 🙂
Their eyes light up like a kid at Christmastime.
A beautiful bird…love the orange red color on his cap!
He is not as skittish as some of my birds, which makes it a bit easier to get his picture. 🙂
Fabulous shots of this wonderful fellow, Kathy! What a beautiful backyard guest.
He is always a welcome arrival!
Amazing capture with him in flight…I love it!
Cute post and beautiful photos!
Love your flight capture! So difficult to get 🙂
