Size & Shape A sleek, round-headed woodpecker, about the same size as a Hairy Woodpecker but without the blocky outlines. Color Pattern Often appears pale overall, even the boldly black-and-white striped back, with flashing red cap and nape. Look for white patches near the wingtips as this bird flies.
Red-bellied Woodpeckers are common in many Eastern woodlands and forests, from old stands of oak and hickory to young hardwoods and pines. They will also often venture from forests to appear at backyard feeders.
Another one of my favorite 'city' woodpeckers is the Red-bellied. spotted this one while on my morning break.
