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.
So happy to be back for squares in 2021!
