Red-bellied Woodpecker

I found this male Red-bellied Woodpecker today along the north shore of Gull Lake, Manitoba. I located this bird by their distinctive call and managed to get a few record photos like the one shown below (heavily cropped). The Red-bellied Woodpecker is still rather rare in Manitoba, although they do seem to be moving northward and there are now one or two sightings in southern Manitoba every year.

Happy fall birding all!
