I like the red hat he is wearing! :) Great shot, Shelley.

Hi Shelley,
A nice shot, I would have like to do it!!!

Deb said...

We love watching the Woodpeckers grabbing great big chunks of suet. Usually they have to wait their turn as the squirrels are at the suet baskets first :-) Great photo!

I love that picture. He looks so cute with the suet in his mouth.

Mildred said...

So many choices!! But if it were me and it was a Reece's Peanut Butter cup, I would eat it!!!

Love the colors on these guys! So striking in the winter time...he does look a little puzzled about what to do next??A good problem to have tho..

My Red-Bellied Woodpeckers do the same thing--grab a peanut or seed from the feeder and fly away to the tree. They're fun birds to watch and listen to.

First of all I would go to the other side of the tree where no one can see me.......

Maybe he will give it to his loved one? How cute!
Unfortunately I have a very sad junco story on my end and I feel real bad!

Shelly: what a neat capture of the woodpecker.

Sandy said...

Another beauty...

Jenny said...

That red head is glowing! It surely has a stashing point on the other side of that tree!

KathyB. said...

Great shot! We have several varieties of woodpecker around here and I see them frequently.They are fun to watch aren't they?

Natural Moments said...

It is funny and fun to watch where the birds restash their food that they get from the feeders.

Jayne said...

Such a sweetheart!

Bird Girl said...

That is neat! I love how these guys stash goodies for later - and you happened to catch that - cool!

NCmountainwoman said...

Swallow it, silly! Lovely picture. I really like seeing them hold the food for a while before gulping it down.

Leedra said...

I agree with Craig, probably decided on the tummy. Or has a hole there somewhere that is stuffed very well.

Great caption with the photo.

I have added a new blog. Hope you will choose to follow it, it will be the one I will post at daily now. Although I will still be posting at the original one.
