Red-headed

This somewhat rare bird of Central Park has been very popular recently. Birders in the park have enjoyed sitting by the feeders in the Ramble, talking about the bird and photographing it. There is young Red-headed Woodpecker near 72nd Street on the East side of Central Park that has been there all winter. Neither bird has found a mate.

I took these with my Nikon D750 with a Sigma 150-600 mm lens. the ones that show two birds in a picture are composites.
