Red-bellied Woodpecker

Melanerpes carolinus


Tan body with a bright red head. Back and wings are covered in thin bands of black and white. These birds do have a faint red streak on their underside, hence the common name. Females only have red on the back of their heads, with a gray patch on the forehead. This one is a male!


First time I've ever seen one of these. This one has been visiting the feeder for a few weeks now.
