The Red-bellied Woodpecker from Wednesday’s Magnolia Seed Berry post kept looking for a place to lodge his find in a dead tree branch above me.
He picked a pretty lichen covered perch but could not find a useful spot to put that berry.
A couple of times I thought he had lost it in a hollow place in the branch, but he eventually got it back.
After a few more unsuccessful tries he scanned for another spot.

What beautiful photos and what perseverance!
Thank you! Yes, he did not give up although it did seem he could find something a bit easier with a wide variety of trees nearby producing nuts and berries.
Just love that creature. Great shots!
They are fun to watch. Thank you. I’m glad that you liked the images and thanks for commenting!
