Red-Headed Woodpecker

May 20, 2010 - I was on my way out of the house to attend a Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin field trip hoping to see a Kirtland's Warbler when I took a quick look in the backyard and spotted a Red-headed woodpecker at a feeding station. I had never before had this bird in my yard and could hardly believe my eyes! I was gone all weekend (and DID see the Kirtland's Warbler!) but when I returned home this fellow was still hanging around. Managed to get a few photos from quite a distance and was thrilled to have this as my 27th species in the yard during spring migration.
