Red-bellied Woodpecker

Sharing a Tree

I could hear the Red-bellied Woodpecker around the swamp from the distinctive shrill call. Sound bouncing off the water can make the exact direction hard to pinpoint. Eventually the flash of red gave away his position.

This tree branch has a number of holes the woodpecker was exploring while a juvenile Little Blue Heron looked on.

Satisfied, the heron returned to sentry duty.
