Red-headed woodpecker at Rondeau Provincial Park.

Red headed woodpeckers continue coming into the suet feeders in the yard. This was cropped to create a close up but has no other editing.

Melanerpes erythrocephalus
Red-headed Woodpeckers are fierce defenders of their territory. They may remove the eggs of other species from nests and nest boxes, destroy other birds’ nests, and even enter duck nest boxes and puncture the duck eggs.
