Red-bellied Woodpecker in Pennsylvania

Red-bellied Woodpecker

Whenever I find myself in the eastern part of the U.S. (this time in Pennsylvania) I of course am always on the lookout for birds I don't see in the west. Blue Jays are common and conspicuous (and handsome), but the Red-bellied Woodpecker tries very hard not to be conspicuous, and is often heard but not seen. This one, however, eventually could not resist the appeal of my brother-in-law's sunflower seed feeder, and gave me some good looks as he came down for a final snack before the sun went down.
