Red-bellied Woodpecker #Birds #WingsOnWednesday

A Red-bellied Woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus) has set up household in a snag in our back yard.  We’ve left the snag there for that specific purpose; it’s riddled with nesting holes.  I hope to be able to get some photographs of the nestlings soon.

This photo is from last year – April 6, 2010.
