Woodpeckers shy and bold

Red-bellied Woodpecker

The Red-bellied Woodpecker won’t visit the feeders when I am outside. I took this picture through the window.

A sleek, round-headed woodpecker, about the same size as a Hairy Woodpecker but without the blocky outlines.

Hairy Woodpeckers

But Hairy Woodpeckers are bolder. I was sitting in a deck chair when these two showed up last night.

The one on the right is a fledgling. It was following its father around, noisily begging to be fed. Look at its fluffy head!
