Immature Red-Bellied Woodpecker

Birds, Nature, Photography

Watching this baby red-bellied woodpecker was fascinating. His head hasn’t gotten red yet like his parents. AND, I did not know that woodpeckers had tongues! It makes sense. Pecking into the wood probably doesn’t accomplish getting at all the bugs they find. Makes me think of them as “flying ant eaters.” Ha!
