Busy Day at the Feeder

After a few days of very cold weather and snow the bird feeder was very busy today. Most interesting to me is the frequent arrivals of this male Red-bellied Woodpecker. I don’t see woodpeckers at the feeder very often. Whenever he showed up all of the smaller birds fled. One choice shot is on the Nikon Df 365 day page, and three more are here.
