Birds in Snow: Red-bellied Woodpecker
Melanerpes carolinus 91/2 inches

Four varieties came to our feeders during the polar vortex snow storm. This: the Red-bellied Woodpecker is a regular visitor----Careful eyes will note his long red TONGUE ---that is how he is able to access the seeds thru the mesh. (meant for smaller birds) .

It's very acrobatic Jenn.

Fabulous shot, he is so determined to reach the seed. The birds must have suffered in the intense cold. Hope you have warmer and better conditions now. Janet
A great capture
