Red-bellied Woodpecker

Typically, my suet log attracts a lot of Nuthatches and Downey Woodpeckers, but every once in a while a Red-bellied Woodpecker stops in for a bite to eat as well.

This is one of the first good images that I've taken on my new suet log. Compared to my old one, this log only has holes drilled on one side. I designed it as such so that I could get nice profile shots by forcing the birds to only feed on one side, and to limit the amount of suet in the frame that detracted from the quality of the image.
