I had an unusual bird scene on my deck this morning. First, a pair of downy woodpeckers showed up at the feeder and showed the feeding scenes. Shortly after they left a pair of red-bellied woodpeckers came along and showed the feeding actions. I have witnessed and photographed downy woodpeckers feeding scenes previously but it’s the first time seeing red-bellied woodpeckers in such actions. I’ve seen similar action of blue jays a week ago but did not capture with my camera. Hope they come back!
Your captures are gorgeous! They are such beautiful birds and your pictures of them wonderful.
Thank you, Lynette! I was lucky to capture these precious moments.
Twoo times lucky in one day 🙂

Excellent shots, Stephen. Gorgeous birds and you caught some great feeding action. 🙂
Thanks, Jane. I was lucky to capture these precious moments. The pair of downy came back today and did the feeding actions again. I always have my camera ready!
