This red-bellied woodpecker throws his weight around (literally), intimidates the other birds and has his feast all to himself.

    We don't get an over abundance of the Red Bellied Woodpeckers and the ones that do make their rare appearance to our feeder don't stay very long ...maybe because of the squirrels, who tend to hog the main feeder..... Lovely shot and I like your suet holder.

    I have not seen this particular type of woodpecker around here. It's a pretty woodpecker, even if it is a bully to other birds : ) Love your suet holder also!

    That suet feeder was given to us by a friend. I think it probably came from Wild Birds Unlimited.
