Caption: The gorgeous Red-headed Woodpecker is so boldly patterned it’s been called a “flying checkerboard,” with an entirely crimson head, a snow-white body, and half white, half inky black wings. These birds don’t act quite like most other woodpeckers: they’re adept at catching insects in the air, and they eat lots of acorns and beech nuts, often hiding away extra food in tree crevices for later. This magnificent species has declined severely in the past half-century because of habitat loss and changes

Thanks Nanapoo and Weatherwise, for your comments! We have been seeing this one at a distance, but today I was on the porch (with my camera) and he just landed right near. Then he was up to check out the utility pole!

Beautiful! I have seen one in my lifetime and
did not have my camera. That was a couple of
weeks ago in Savannah TN. Great shot! I hope
you got more shots! Please post if you did!
