The Turkey Woodpecker



This little guy was SO loud! And kinda warbly and I knew there were turkeys in these woods so I was convinced it must be a turkey. I spent an embarrassing amount of time hunting for a turkey. 馃ぃ It鈥檚 actually called a red-bellied woodpecker (I swear I looked it up 馃檭), but I鈥檝e given it the much more accurate name of Turkey Woodpecker. 馃槀馃槃

LOL! At least you found your "turkey"

We have a special needs woodpecker in the pasture across the road. He is hell-bent on getting bugs out of the metal roof of the cow barn!

Wonder why it's called "red-bellied" when its head is red? Life is so full of mysteries.
JustNik46-50, F
[@663519,Mamapolo2016] I thought the same thing! I wondered if the color dropped down with age (age seems to make things drop 馃槀) but I never did find a picture of it with a red belly. 馃し鈥嶁檧锔

[@23104,JustNik] Maybe they figured "Well, there's already a red-headed woodpecker..."
JustNik46-50, F
[@663519,Mamapolo2016] that must be it! 馃槃

[@64578,fun4us2b] wild. I couldn鈥檛 believe such a big sound came from something that small!

I love when I hear that sound. I feel like I am in a thriving forest.
Lolol...

If there's only one person who is allowed to create new names in nature, that would be you... 馃惁馃悿

If one of them ever lands on the roof of your house and starts in your siding you鈥檒l be calling it a more colorful name than that....they sound like a damn jackhammer when they are on the house.

[@16806,cherokeepatti] LOLOL I know! Our cedar siding is due to be replaced and they like our house!
