Beautiful Red-Bellied Woodpecker At Our Bird Bath On Cape Cod.

This little Red-bellied Woodpecker was taking a drink at our backyard bird bath during a recent cold spell. Its black-and-white striped back and flashing red cap and nape make it easy to identify.

Many times they will call out before coming into the yard… almost like “Watch out! Here I come!” What a beauty! Have you seen any Red-Bellied woodpeckers this winter?
