Woodpeckers

Woodpeckers have been active lately, which is a good thing since other wildlife has been scarce.  This yellow-bellied sapsucker is the most cooperative one I have yet encountered...



Red-bellied woodpeckers are extremely common in these parts...




Not so common are red-headed woodpeckers.  I had to visit Gettysburg to find these...




This pileated woodpecker is exploring a dead tree trunk for insects...


The last image is of a northern flicker...


The next time you hear drumming from a tree top it might be one of these.
