“My home overlooks a Little River floodplain near Woodstock,” wrote Bill Witherspoon. “Numerous woodpeckers frequent my feeders and I have found numerous nest trees in the area. I took this photo the last week of July, as the adult had just fed the juvenile what appeared to be blue berries from a neighbors farm.” He went on to add, “the Red-headed Woodpecker is a gorgeous bird with a bright red head from which it got its name. This North American species, with its boldly-patterned plumage, is popular among the bird-watchers and is widely spread almost all across the country, and is known in different names like ‘flag bird’ and ‘patriotic bird’.”
