Wintertime woodies!

Three types of woodpeckers making themselves very noticeable out in the yard:

The fiesty little downy,

The noisy and huge pileated, making himself a new cavity in a large oak tree,

And the rather silly red bellied woodpecker. This guy's new name is "Baldy"... He flew into our window, left a lot of his read head feathers behind, still hanging out in the yard, seems to be doing ok, but he is awfully funny looking now. Will post before and after pic if the opportunity presents itself.

There is also ample evidence of yellow bellied sapsuckers on the property, but we'll have to wait until spring for them to return.
