We agree with Sheri Douse of Deltona, Florida: red is never boring, especially when it is on the head of a Red-bellied Woodpecker. Congratulations to Sheri for being the BirdSpotter Judges’ Choice winner with her charming photo of a male Red-bellied Woodpecker.
Sheri writes: “I get a variety of birds at my feeder. When it comes to my frequent birds I can’t think of one of them I would ever consider boring. They all carry a uniqueness to them. This woodpecker is one of my top visitors and each time brings a smile to my face. Their bright red beauty is so breathtaking. So give it up to this guy and say No to Boring!”
Now is the time to submit your photo to the next BirdSpotter category Birds in Flight. Biweekly People’s Choice and Judges’ Choice winners receive prizes from the Cornell Lab and our sponsor, Wild Birds Unlimited.
