SQUARES – Upside Down

Red-bellied Woodpecker captured foraging for insects in a large oak tree at St. Marks Wildlife Refuge near Tallahassee, Florida.

Red-bellied Woodpeckers are so acrobatic they could be in the circus. As they forage around for insects in trees as seen in the top photo captured at St. Marks Wildlife Refuge near Tallahassee, Florida. They are quite adaptive to visiting your feeders as well. They love the peanuts and will do a “grab and go”. So often, we will watch them come, grab a peanut and fly off to stash it in a hiding place. They will do this back and forth regimen until they raid the whole feeder of the peanuts as seen in the photo below.

Red-bellied Woodpecker stealing all the peanuts in our feeder while hanging upside down.  He grabbed it and flew off to stash it away.  This went on for over 30 minutes.

So happy to be back for squares in 2021!

    • Thank you Natalie. Your comment went into my spam. Unfortunately, I don’t drink coffee. Lots of hot chocolate but never acquired the taste for coffee. I appreciate the invite. πŸ™‚
