Woodpeckers – Comparing Four


I have oodles of Red-bellied Woodpecker photos to still go through (they are everywhere in Everglades City and I cannot resist), but just recently scored photos of three others.

So here’s a photo of each of these four Woodpeckers, from smallest to largest, for a bit of comparison.

There are a total of 23 species of woodpeckers in North America.Β  Wow, I didn’t know that myself!

  1. Four beautiful woodpeckers! I like them a lot. I saw a Downy Woodpecker in my backyard this morning! Was happy to see him. I can imagine you must be elated to photograph four of them. Great captures, my friend. πŸ™‚ πŸ‘

  2. Red bellied looks like what I see here all the time. They take over our hummingbird feeder! Go figure! …I like seeing the other varieties of woodpeckers. Great photos!

  3. I love woodpeckers–just unbelievable the work they do. My favorite is the flicker, though. I always think that its markings are so unique (and confusing).

  4. How pretty! The trees, too.

    It just occurred to me that you are like birds like I am with flowers. I haven’t posted in a while (taking a break) but, spring is here and I will be back to snapping shots.
