Default Woodpeckers - The Long & The Short of It

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.



3.



4. And some intermediates - Male Northern Flicker.



5.



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.

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.
