Now Exposed

Red Bellied Woodpecker

This red bellied woodpecker has figured out how to use my bird feeder even though it is actually designed for smaller birds. In this photo, a faint red patch on its belly, which is usually concealed by surrounding feathers, is now exposed. This is a male bird, as you can see by its red forehead, nape and crown. I never grow tired of gazing at the striking colors of the amazing creature!

Advantage Grackle (CYW Royal Purple)

Grackle

The iridescent purple head and golden eye are distinctive features of a grackle. This smart bird was supposed to be too big for this feeder, but it figured out a way to get some food! It used its size to its advantage by reaching its head around to grab a tasty treat!

Here is another view:
