Earlier this year, I had fun watching a Red-bellied Woodpecker eat berries off a tree. We often think of woodpeckers as eating only the insects and other bugs they can get to by drilling a tree trunk. But they also eat other types of food, including nuts and berries.

I especially like the first photo-portrait of these because of similar visitors to my own local grounds. Thank you so much for this article and the photos!

Beautiful shots Scott. So true that most woodpeckers like humans add fruit to their diets. I particularly love this woodpecker.
