Photo of the Week: Red-Bellied Woodpecker Named ‘Tomato’ Stops for a Bite

By: Rich Hosford

Another week, another photo to highlight!


This week’s photo shows a feathered friend grabbing a snack and avoiding the normal head-pounding it takes for him to find some food. It was sent in by 10-year-olds Sydney and Ivy Geist and features a Red-Bellied Woodpecker that comes to their home feeder everyday for a bite to eat. Perhaps because of the red head the kids have nicknamed him ‘Tomato’. 


Thanks for the photo, Sydney and Ivy!  


We’d like to see your photos. They could be of something you see around town, the weather outside your own door or even photos of your family members and pets. Whatever you think is interesting and would like to share.


Email your photos to bcat@bcattv.org with the subject line “Photo of the Week.”
