A Yellow Sea of Poppies! -Woodland Walk Wednesday
I'll end this walk with a picture of the Red-Bellied
Woodpecker. He was busy hammering away on the tree limb above me while I was busy taking pictures for this weeks walk. I'm so fortunate to have many different woodpeckers take up residence in our woods! I've learned through the years how to tell them apart by their call. The Red-Bellied Woodpecker has a loud chu-urr, chu-urr, chu-urro. You can find out more about this bird by clicking on the link Red-Bellied Woodpecker below.
Red-Bellied Woodpecker - He's about 10", has a barred
black and white back and upper wings, with a striking red crown,
nape and lores. This little drummer is a male.
If you look closely, they have pale red-bellies!
Until next week!!
