Red-headed Woodpecker

Melanerpes erythrocephalus


Grey overcast day. I tried to get close and it kept moving. I finally stopped and used a 210mm lens at a long distance. I then had to crop quite alot to show the woodpecker.

Yep! it is a Red-headed Woodpecker, not as common in some areas as it used to be.
