Thanks, Eric. As I've said so many times before, sun is the enemy of good bird pictures. Burnt out highlights and too much glint off feathers is the results of too much of it. It was under a cloud when I took this. It might have been nicer to have brighter light. Then I could have used a lower ISO.

Glorious. Red-bellied woodpeckers are so beautiful. This is terrific!

I love looking at this beautiful creature! Such a contrast with the red head and the black & white wings. I have seen women with that color hair too! ;-D
