Red-bellied Woodpecker

Tap tap tap tap… tap tap. Where you at mystery morse code bird? Chirrrp… chirrrp… chirrrp! Ahah! Red-bellied Woodpecker! There you are. Most smallish woodpeckers are so unconcerned with human presence that they don’t bother to look up from what they’re doing, which makes them difficult to photograph. The red bellies aren’t concerned either but they’ve got a much more laid back style where they actually stop and enjoy the view from time to time.
