Here's the Red-bellied Woodpecker that I told you about earlier this morning in my post "Fresh snow for a nature walk". He was hanging around in the area of that second image I shared. Up in and off to the left. Hope you enjoy him as much as I did.
Last week when I went for my walk I went to a place that I have not been in some time. Last year I spent a lot of time here taking images of the Pileated Woodpeckers, Scarlet Tanagers and a host of other birds. This day felt new to my. The ground had a fresh layer of new snow on it that was like a new adventure for me, like an unspooled wilderness to explore. I loved it! On this adventure I only saw a hand full of Chickadees, two Downey Woodpeckers and a Male Red-belled Woodpecker that I'll share on my next post. The top image is were I found the male Scarlet Tanager off to the left as you go down the old logging trial. I only saw the male this past year. The bottom image is were I found the Pileated Woodpecker. Both images are from the Binghamton area of New York State.
