Default RBW feeding

This female Red-bellied woodpecker was feeding by first flying to the feeder that contained black-oil sunflower seeds. She would get a few in her beak/gullet, fly over to the tree trunk, deposit the seeds in a hollowed-out area, and then, she would peck them open and eat. Then, would repeat the process.









Ready for another load!

I really enjoyed these, Gary. Every woodpecker I've ever seen has been so far away that binoculars were necessary.

Thanks, guys. I am, indeed, blessed to have a pretty good variety of birds come into my feeding station.

Hey Gary: don't forget to do a test between the 50-200 with the 2x attached vs. the 50-200 and just enlarge and crop the shot. I'm really curious and you have the perfect test bed with your bird models and equipment.
