This is a pretty big bird, perhaps twice the size of a Cardinal. When he shows up the other birds leave the feeder immediately. I suspect this is the bird that destroyed the last of my bell feeders. It's about the right size. All I saw was a blur when it happened so maybe I'm accusing the wrong bird.
I've had pictures of Red-Bellied Woodpeckers in the past, but not for several years now until I got this one. I'm glad to see that there are a few more birds coming around. I still think there aren't many birds in the area for some reason. That's why I was reluctant to get a feeder in the first place.
I'm still not getting a huge variety of birds, but as you can see I'm getting more than enough to keep me busy. I'm at least getting plenty of posts to write. The weather is warming up nicely and I'll be off on some better adventurers soon. And maybe I can still get some stuff from the feeder to fill in at times. I'll talk to you later.
