Woodpecker!!!!

I keep trying
 The bird did not want to cooperate
 but I kept trying.
Finally it posed for me!
I THINK it's Red-bellied Woodpecker.

Woodpeckers are very strong headed birds, it's hard to get them to pose. Great pictures, I think you're right on with the type of pecker he is.

Yup it is a Red Bellied Woodpecker , if you had a telephoto zoom lens like I use all the time for my nature shots you could of got closer with out getting closer , but still good shots they can be skittish . Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !
