February 8, 2018

Location: Fellsmere, St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park

I am a Red-bellied Woodpecker,
Drilling a hole in a tree.
You can see my nictitating membrane
Which protects my eyes from the flying debris.

(Click to enlarge this picture and look at his eye - you can see that his third eyelid is down.)
