Hand Feeding a Red-Bellied Woodpecker in Slow Motion is Mesmerizing

A male red-bellied woodpecker glides in from the edge of the forest to grab a treat from the hand of Jocelyn Anderson.

You sometimes see these Red-bellied Woodpeckers wedge large nuts into the crevices of bark, then whack them into manageable pieces using their beaks.

They can also use the cracks in trees and fence posts to store food for later in the year, a habit it shares with other woodpeckers.

These birds are pale, medium-sized woodpeckers and are common in the forests in the East of the USA.

Their barred backs and gleaming red caps makes them unforgettable.

Be careful not to call them Red-headed Woodpeckers, they are rarer species who are mostly black on the back with big white wing patches.

Red-bellied woodpeckers can stick their tongue out nearly 2 inches past the end of its beak.

The tip is barbed and they have sticky spit meaning its easier to snatch prey from deep crevices.
