Female Red-Bellied Woodpecker in Flight at Deep Creek Lake, MD

Yesterday I wrote about my weekend watching a pair of red-bellied woodpeckers at Deep Creek Lake, Md. After posting a photo of the male bird, today, I am posting a photo of a female red-bellied, in flight. I  almost never use photos that are not sharp but I made a rare exception to that rule for this photo as it really shows how wide a wing span these sleek birds possess.

Above is another photo of the female  climbing a tree.
