Ruby Tuesday - Red Bellied Woodpecker

The Red Bellied Woodpecker is distinguished by a red cap and nape, white cheeks and a black and white ladder back.  The female has a red nape but the cap is white.  The belly is only faintly tinged with rose.  These are not common at my feeders.

I very nearly posted one of these little fellows on my blog this week as well. I opted for Cardinals instead. Happy Ruby Tuesday.

The family of this bird is sometimes visiting our garden here in holland but to get a nice picture of her is another story. Thanks for showing. I like it.

I love the red-bellied woodpeckers! They are always nice to have visit.

Est-ce une photo prise dans votre jardin ? Je sais que vous n'oubliez jamais les oiseaux lors du temps d'hiver !

Nice shot, especially considering they don't visit you often!
