I didn't set out to take a photograph of this Red-headed Woodpecker, or any bird for that matter. I was out taking shots of a flower garden. For some reason birds just follow me. : ) Are you all getting tired of all my bird posts?
I was only standing about 10 feet from this tree. The bird was not even concerned about me, or the owner of the flower garden standing so close.
I'm pretty sure the woodpecker is killing this tree. I think he is after the sap inside of the tree?? My second guess are insects???
You can see the sap running down the bark of the tree.
Can you believe I finally got a good bird photo?
