He that believeth on me as the scripture hath said, out of his belly
shall flow rivers of living water...St. John 8: 38
The Red Bellied Woodpecker
Flew through a snow storm...
With other birds to form...
A big line at the feeder.
They fed their bellies..
Exposed to the freeze.
Poetry by me, AJP
It is rarely that I have seen the underside of the red-bellied woodpecker as clearly as this as they normally like to sit on their haunches on the feeder or to their wing side of the suet block as they eat..I was surprised how much color its belly had..especially when one of the bird books I have said: "the name is misleading for the red patch on its belly is faint. "
Yesterday we had a blizzard and snow was filling the feeder faster than we could brush it off...We had tons of birds who waited in line to get to the feeder but the squirrels took their time eating which was frustrating for the birds for they were all wanting something to eat. We saw cardinals and bluejays sitting together in the branches waiting their turn!
