While Red-bellied Woodpeckers are a common sight in this area, I encountered an uncommon sight of one this week. As I was driving through a very busy parking lot, a speck of red caught my eye. As I got closer, I realized it was a Red-bellied Woodpecker sitting in middle of the road.
Enjoying a few sips of some road runoff, this Woodpecker didn't seemed fazed by the traffic.
I was happy when this guy retreated to a safer location.
