Many thanks for the comments, all! There's a feeding station set up in the park where the birds are used to getting handouts. The chickadees and nuthatches eat out of your hand (photos of them coming later). Lots of great photo ops -- and we had very sweet light as well.

Peanut butter suet is a great woodpecker attraction. They like to feed on it early in the day -- just as the first rays of the sun strike the feeder for a quick burst of morning energy. Never learned to like it myself.

Great shot, Larry. Had one in my backyard just last week but couldn't get to my camera fast enough...glad you were able to capture this beautiful bird!

Great shot! The Red Bellied is one of my favorite "backyard" birds -- "King of the Feeder".
