The Red-headed Woodpeckers are great at catching flying insects in the air. They will also find some of their food; on the ground, in bushes or trees. Some of the things that the woodpeckers like to eat are; different types of insects, nuts, fruits, berries and seeds. They also like corn and suet.
Red-headed Woodpeckers will sometimes wedge their extra food in between wood cracks or crevices in trees, and they may cover it over with barks of wood to hide it from other birds.
We don't see this bird very often in our woods. When they do show up they come to our yard to eat suet that we have hanging up for the birds to eat and they like the dry-roasted, unsalted peanuts that we put out for the birds in our area.
