Nothing quite like spring and the rhythmic sounds of the drummings of woodpeckers on trees! Their sounds can be heard for quite a distance. Sounds such as this attract mates and also helps them dine on insects living in the trunks and limbs of various trees. Red-bellied woodpeckers have a black and white barred pattern on their backs, rosy bellies and shiny reddish orange caps on their heads. A male Red-Bellied is the focus of this painting.
