At the Bird Feeder- Red Bellied Woodpecker

My bird feeders have been a very busy place.  They are mostly occupied by Blue Jays and Cardinals, but there are lots of other visitors.  I used to have lots of Goldfinches, but since one of the types of seed I had ran out, they haven't been visiting as much although I can still hear them in the trees.  I saw a lot of woodpeckers today.  A male Red-Bellied Woodpecker made an appearance and I'm so glad I grabbed a few quick pictures before it flew off.  Blurry pictures, but proof. I had put out some new food to see if I could attract any other types of birds. Well I guess it worked.  Maybe this guy is to blame for all the holes in my tree.

The Woodpecker is beautiful and it has certainly been busy to make all those holes in the tree trunk.
