Red Headed Woodpecker Duo

This beautiful duo is one of two pairs of Red headed woodpeckers calling our woods their home. They LOVE peanut butter suet cakes and go through several every week! They are delightful to watch and can be seen
playing and chasing other birds among the treetops.

This woodpecker just could not decide what to eat for breakfast.

Red-headed woodpecker nested in one of my bluebird boxes. The male opened the hole to a little more than 2 inches and moved in. I’ll leave it this way and see if the woodpeckers use it again next year.
