Birthday Bird.

I particularly like red-headed woodpeckers and this one came in to wish me a happy 70th.
Shot through the Wonderful Wildlife Window.

Melanerpes erythrocephalus.

The Red-headed Woodpecker has many nicknames, including half-a-shirt, shirt-tail bird, jellycoat, flag bird, and the flying checker-board.
