After our first snowfall, the sun was shining and all the birds came out to feed. Caught this beauty before the snow melted. Red bellied woodpecker.
Category 1: Birds with Food, or at the Feeder
Species: Red-bellied Woodpecker
Our first snow of the season.
Awesome photo! ❤️
Hello FeederWatch! Is there any chance you can fix the typo in the title of my submission? Dreadful autocorrect changed first to fists and unfortunately I didn’t notice until after I submitted it. Should say “Our first snow of the season”.
Will do! Should be all set now.
How do we vote? I have tried taken pictures of this species & it’s hard. They don’t stay in one spot very long.
Hi Carol, Voting closed for this category on Thursday night at midnight. The next period for submission and voting is open now. You can see a full schedule of the BirdSpotter contest if you scroll down on the BirdSpotter homepage.
