20130504-1 216 Red-headed Woodpecker.jpg

Reportedly the R-h woodpeckers came back late on May 1st. I had spent several hours looking for them that morning, but no cigar. Two days later, someone told me that they had seen one late the same day that I had been there. I went back today and saw three of them and I was able to get some shots.

Nikon D800 ,Nikkor 500mm f/4D IF-ED AF-S II
1/1000s f/5.6 at 700.0mm iso360 full exif

This one was well worth your trip! These guys need 'Old Growth' Oak trees - the more standing Oak, the better! The nearest ones I've located here in Virginia are some 25 miles away, but well worth the drive.
