This is a first year (juvenile) red-bellied Woodpecker photographed in Lake County IL. There is quite a variety of young birds out and about in the area. I was hoping to get this “inverted” posture typical of Woodpeckers when foraging; the fact that it was a juvenile is bonus. This was taken over the past weekend.
