Red-Bellied Woodpecker At Our Bird Feeder On Cape Cod


We have a Red-Bellied Woodpecker that lives near our home on Cape Cod and comes by several times a day to feed from the suet at our bird feeder. I can always tell when he is nearby by his distinct call. It’s almost that he is announcing his arrival at the feeder.

He is such a handsome bird with the bright red on his head. It is ironic that there is virtually no red on his belly.

Last night as I was sitting on our deck, the Red-Bellied Woodpecker came to our feeder filled with grape jelly (for the Baltimore Orioles) several times. And then he flew back up to the tree and there were 2 babies up there waiting for him! What an awesome sight!!
