No Doctor Needed for This Red-bellied Woodpecker

The video that I spent the entire day uploading yesterday was never uploaded, So I apologize for teasing you.  I couldn't even get it uploaded to facebook.  There is something I don't know either about my Apple notebook or my Canon camera.  I'll keep trying, but am not optimistic. 
So on to a new subject.  I had some Pink Lady apples that weren't up to par.  I quartered them and placed them at the end of my sidewalk to see who would eat them.
Looks like I have a taker.
Maybe the Red-bellied just liked the way the apple skin complimented its red head and neck.
After eating a big hole in the apple section, the woodpecker finally had enough and moved on.

  Yes, I keep putting up the same books.  I have met this woman and her watercolor paintings are wonderful.

Great captures.

I never knew woodpeckers liked apples, either. You captured fantastic images of your visitor, those feathers are amazing.

He's a handsome fellow. Usually the squirrels in my yard grab the apples I toss out before the birds can get a taste.

Super photos--I wouldn't thought of an apple as bid food.
