As mentioned on Twitter, I had a visit from this Red-bellied Woodpecker at our peanut feeder. We are on Sandy Creek, where it meets the north end of Buckhorn Lake (near Lakehurst or Buckhorn, depending who you ask!).
It was just after 11 am on December 31st. She didn’t stay for long but fed for a few minutes, then headed off into the trees. I was happy to be able to get this shot through my kitchen window. We have resident Hairy, Downy and Pileated Woodpeckers and frequent visits from Northern Flickers but this was my first time seeing a Red-bellied Woodpecker.
