Red-bellied Woodpecker

Red-bellied Woodpecker.
I have several Red-bellied Woodpeckers that visit the feeders and studio. They mainly come in to grab suet nuggets, loading 4 or 5 into their beaks, and then flying off to feed young in all likelihood. In the past they have nested in a tree just off my neighbors back deck. I’m not sure if they are there this year or nearby. When Cecil was in town last week this female decided to break from the normal routine of landing on one of the post, then flying to the feeder. She decided to pose in one of the crepe myrtles for a few seconds. I like how she was nice enough to even show a little of the red belly that gives them their name.
