My area is filled with mixed forest that supports a nice variety of woodpecker species. I thought you might enjoy a sampling of some my local Woodpeckers.

1. The "Long" - Male Pileated (too close for the lens I was using).

2. The "Short" - Male Downy.

6. Male Red-bellied of "Mr. Red-bellied" fame.

7. And finally, some kids. Male (I think) Red-bellied (also goes by "Baldy").

8. Male Downy.

Before you ladies get all upset that I didn't include any female woodpeckers, I believe they were off performing their motherly roosting duties during the time when most of these images were collected. I'll be sure to include as many females as possible next time.
I hope you've enjoyed "the tour" and will feel comfortable leaving your comments, thoughts, and critiques.

Sometimes there are days when you get the shot(s) you missed many days, months or years before.

Excellent shots and familiar birds to my area as well although I've yet get too close to a Pileated, that could make me envious. The Red Bellied sure has a lot of red on his head. Enjoyed viewing these shots, thanks for sharing.
