While I went to a photography festival today to learn how to take better pictures, Regis took great pictures and video of the Red-bellied Woodpeckers nesting in a tree cavity behind our house. This is the same woodpecker pair that we showed a few posts ago (“Fiddler Crabs”) making the cavity.
You can see the long, sticky tongue occasionally. The male has red on his forehead and down the back of his neck. The female only has the red on the back of her neck.
