Very nice photos Mike. I haven’t seen any here in Florida but in Alabama I was lucky to get a few pictures a few years ago.

First time I see these birds.
They must be scarce.

Not found in Europe, but wide-ranging in eastern North America. Except here in southern Florida, where they are rare. Gorgeous birds!

Nice shots. More colorful than the woodpeckers we get here.

Thank you, rhanz. I don't see the Red-headed Woodpeckers very often, but now know of a place where they. Thanks for your comments.

Thank you. They aren't too plentiful where I live, either. I happened upon these birds on a new trail just opened this year. I think it was almost twenty years since I had seen them.

Thank you, Julie. They may be wide-ranging, but reclusive. If I can find some dead wood stands of trees, perhaps I will see more of them. Thanks for your nice comments.

Thank you, David. They do have striking colors, especially in bright light. That Acorn Woodpecker that you photographed this week looked pretty cool to me. I wouldn't mind seeing one of them.

Love these wildlife captures. Beautiful creatures for sure. The red headed woodpeckers here in the Pacific NW look similar with the exception of a small crest on the back of the head.

Thanks very much for the wonderful treats. ))

Thank you, Tony. I love the colors of these birds. They are very well dressed. I'd like to see an image of the bird in the Pacific NW. Your comments are always welcome.

Unfortunately where J come from, it is almost impossible to photograph such a beautiful birds in the wild, so J'm very lucky to be part of the forum to allow me to admire them.
Great job and many thanks for sharing Mike.

Thank you very much, Loris. I see beautiful birds on the forum that I will never see in person. I enjoy photographing birds and wildlife from this area. I do particularly like seeing this bird. Before I found these birds on this trail, I had not seen or photographed them in almost 20 years. Thanks for your nice comments.
