Red-headed woodpecker

Most of our local woodpeckers are red-headed, at least the adult males, but the red-headed woodpecker is the reddest of the reds. They’re often found perched high in dead tree snag where they hide food in nooks and crannies to eat later. This one was photographed at the Ocala Wetland Recharge Park.
