sapsucker with red accents for Ruby Tuesday 2

I have featured this sapsucker before, but in this photo the red on its head and nape is so very red and intense that I thought it deserving of another mention.  This woodpecker species is very hard on our trees. You can see the holes on the branch that it has made to access the sap in the tree. This is a Russian mountain Ash that the sapsucker is feeding on.

You've taken a very nice picture of the pretty Red Head. Our wood pecker didn't have a red head and I didn't get a nice clear shot of him with my little Sony pocket camera.

Happy Ruby Red Tuesday,
