Red-bellied Regular

Red-bellied Woodpeckers are regular diners in my backyard.

One of the reasons they are frequent feeders is because of the plentiful supply of peanuts that is usually available.

When I really want to spoil them, I load up the cavity in the Dogwood tree with nuts for them to discover…which is also known as “picture bait.”

These guys, along with the Downy Woodpeckers, are year round residents here in the outskirts of Atlanta.

Backyard beauties for sure, Red-bellied Woodpeckers are always welcome at my feeders!

    They are regulars at our feeder here in lower Michigan too. In fact today I witnessed a stand off between a male red belly and a big ole bluejay. The woodpecker won.

  2. Beautiful photos of the woodpecker.
