Red Headed Woodpecker

SmugMug Daily Link

Although I have red-bellied, downy, hairy, northern flicker, and yellow bellied sapsucker woodpeckers in my yard and even and occasional pileated woodpecker, I've never had a red headed woodpecker.  However, a couple of miles away in a swampy area, I often see red headed woodpeckers nesting.  You have to stop along the road and really look hard, but yes, you can see them.  How exciting!

I even got the red headed woodpecker at the entrence to his/her nest.  I saw the bird go in and waited for an out shot but the bird didn't come back out before I had to go.
