I have been waiting a lifetime to see a Red-headed Woodpecker. And I am not alone, I have met several other people who have learned about this bird and come from miles around to see this one bird that has made Washington Crossing his (or her) home for the winter. I have been watching this bird since October 27th caching acorns in cracks and crevasses in the trees in a small grove of Oak trees at Washington Crossing Park. I never get tired of watching and studying the behavior of this beautiful bird.

Hi Paul,

I’ve lived 74 years and never have seen a “Red-headed Woodpecker” either! I never knew it existed until you shot this outstanding photo!!! What a magnificent bird.

Thanks for sharing.
