Red-bellied Woodpecker Head Twist

The first thing I thought of when I saw this Red-bellied Woodpecker twisting its head around was Linda Blair, the possessed child, in The Exorcist.

I even photographed a Gull doing this while it was flying: Gull Flying Upside Down

    Thank you! It does look like that would hurt.

    I was laughing at your caption before I even saw the picture, Steve! Ok, now what did you put in the suet? LOL! I agree with Mia–perfect shot for a rainy Monday.

  7. Steve Creek says:

    Ha! I told the birds to start showing me something different or the people would get bored.

  8. Barbara says:

    Great shot! love those birds who are moving into our territory.

  9. Karen Lund says:

    Maybe she thinks she’s an owl :). Possibly a hawk was flying overhead.

  10. Steve Creek says:

    A mockingbird was the problem instead of a Hawk. :-)

  11. That’s a hilarious title! Sweet shot, amigo!
