YELLOW is the new red

Clarity Red-Bellied Woodpecker

YELLOW is the new red in bird identification

The amount of yellow on the throat was much deeper than the books I researched.

Fortunately I had reliable assistance for an id (Thank you Cathy).

This Red-Bellied Woodpecker sat with it’s head poked out from a hole in a tree as I snapped it’s portrait.

    • Does that mean that the new red is Green 🙂
      Since posting this pic I found out that the brighter shade of yellow is due to breeding coloring, I was a lucky duck so to speak.

  1. Ho-ho-ho ho ho, ho-ho-ho ho ho
    Oh, that’s the Woody Woodpecker’s tune
    Ho-ho-ho ho ho, ho-ho-ho ho ho
    Makes the other woodpeckers swoon


  2. A superb capture…love it’s yellows and reds! Would you mind shipping that guy to my house?
