This is Big Red, the king. The ruler of all he surveys, the chaser of all others, (except for the grackels, and then he's a sissy)
After putting the peanuts in the birdfeeder this morning and watching the woodpeckers come and go, come and go, I was determined to take their picture. The feeder is located very close to the windows and no matter which side I moved to, they saw me and immediately flew away. After about 45 minutes of moving around and maybe swearing a little bit, I finally found a spot where they didn't notice me right away and managed to snap these. Not terrific but not too bad either.
This is the Red Breasted. He doesn't have a red breast but can't be called red headed because of the king. He is next in line to the throne if Big Red ever decides to give it up.
